ADS
by Mrbossanator103 on 2019/04/24 22:35
The money hungry cats at Smule think it’s okay to play you a 30 second ad before AND after you play a single song unless you pay their monthly fee for the “unlimited make your life heaven awesome crazy subscription”. These songs are created by users - not the developers. They aren’t even making the content yet they profit off it exponentially. Absolutely ridiculous. Just wish someone else would take up the spot on the market because if it weren’t for the exorbitant ads this would be an awesome app. Sad.
FIX THIS APP
by aria1986 on 2019/04/24 13:43
No matter what WiFi I use or high speed internet I am connected to, this is the ONLY app that I have that is super super slow. So it’s not on my end. The songs are super slow and nothing is playable anymore. This has been going on a couple weeks now. UPDATE YOUR APP
Use to be great
by Juice0013 on 2019/04/23 14:15
Too many LONG ads, too many In app purchases to truly enjoy the app.
Too many ads
by Maddietaylor4875 on 2019/04/23 14:10
There are way too many ads and it’s so annoying and I can’t even open the app without it taking 10 minutes to load
I lost my 25 smoola for nothing!!!
by memehsia on 2019/04/22 23:36
I bought a song on this app. It did not work. Why you may ask? I have no freaking idea. I bought Bohemian Rhapsody, and when I made the exchange, I played the song just seconds later. Instead of being able to play the song, it told me that I had to have “ 25 more smoola” I spent all of my 25, now not being able to play it. I later made another transaction with a different song, and it was only a few notes long, which I blame the creator. Anyways, please give me my 25 smoola back!!!!
Charge for free trial
by retrovallies on 2019/04/22 16:46
I used to love this game a few years ago so I Redownloaded it. I was excited to see they were offering a free week trial of their membership followed by 7.99 a week. I authorized and played. However, I didn’t receive the free trial and was charged 9.99+tax for it. This is very unprofessional and they stole my money. Now I’ve tried contacting apple support as well as smule but they refuse to give refunds. If you want to be charged for something free, download it. If you value your money, stay away.
I love it
by DELANEY~chan on 2019/04/22 00:40
It has 2 undertale songs on it my Toby Fox but I’m okie with it! Can you make them free i have no more money Love Delaney
I hate it
by VladimierTheFerret on 2019/04/22 00:34
This app is absolutely terrible. The first thing is that when I buy a song and go to my song book it’s not there . When I try to play a song it glitches *just so you’re aware I have the highest quality internet you can get * . I used to have this app and had a much better experience at that time . I am very disappointed in this app and will not be using it again.
Listen up, this will change your life.
by funnytext4life on 2019/04/21 21:16
I don’t really like this app at all. But instead of writing its flaws down, I decided I was going to waste the time of who ever is reading this with something that is ACTUALLY fun and not BORING. So here we go (you’re welcome in advance!): Okay, so the first one I have is a text message conversation, it goes: Dad: How’s practice going? Son: Terrible, I want to stab everyone here Dad: Okay, just don’t get any blood on your clothes Son: Wait, you’re a police officer, you shouldn’t be encouraging this Dad: Don’t tell me h9w to live my life Funny right? Here is the next and final one: (This is in the perspective of a cafe worker.) I was working at a cafe when a little boy and his mother came in for breakfast. Me: “So what will it be?” Boy:”I WISH TO DEVOUR THE UNBORN.” Then everyone was silent as they turned to look at the boy, the mother looked embarrassed. Mother: Eggs, he’ll have eggs, please. Funniest one yet. I love these thing. Thanks for reading this far if you did. I hope you’re happy I gave you something better to do then whatever you were doing! Bye!
Yes and no
by Pattat10 on 2019/04/21 14:38
Amazing game the bad part is the ads.Its a lot of ads
Wut just happend
by lpsmlplover on 2019/04/21 14:32
I luv this app it has all my fav mlp songs and everything but for 1.thare r wayyyyy to many ads for 2. I shouldn’t hv to buy a smule membership ur making unfair for the kids who’s parents turn off the purchase feature on ur phone or tablet like me 3. How do u even compose a song with out it sounding like crap like one time I tried to give composing a shot but boy was I wrong for that I tried to compose my favorite song from Alvin and the chipmunks meet the wolfman ( munks on a mission) but now when i look at it it sounds discordant and terrible now it only makes me have second thoughts about the app but if u really wanna improve this app ull start by removing so many ads quit the member ship stuff and stop with the terrible sounding composer so u can stop making ppl who can’t compose very well look like losers while ppl like twily sparkles look like they play piano in real life
Stupid ads
by mathea ta momo on 2019/04/21 03:27
I never write reviews but this really needs to get fixed. So, every time you level up you get one coin thing and it’s not fair! If the songs cost so much at least give ten or five. Next the ads. I saw a lot of complaints for ads and when I got the app, surprise surprise the ad colony came and invaded. The songs need to cost less too. Finally, you should be able to test the song BEFORE you get it. I got a song that I really like but it was to short and off. Please fix I love this app.( also I’m in forth grade.)
Well I didn’t like it
by seventeoonethreeninw on 2019/04/20 19:54
It always told me to go to fast, when I went slower it said to slow. The game doesn’t have a good one, also I really want to play songs I want but that’s VIP members so I can’t do it
TO FAST
by Mr pro lol on 2019/04/20 14:06
Why is the marshmallow song sooooo hard!!! Easy on the marshmallow song is soooooooooo hard!!! WHY PEAPLE🤬🤬🤬😤😤😤😡😡😡
Takes forever
by Ace1Love on 2019/04/20 04:42
I’ve been sitting on the loading screen for 5 minutes now. It does this every time I open the app it just makes me wanna delete it all together
Needs Improvements: Please read
by ILOVEGAMESANDFOOD on 2019/04/19 21:33
I just started playing yesterday because I used to play it when I was younger. Most of the songs that I wanted to play cost 25 sumolas. I tried to see how I could get sumolas for free. I checked all of the offers, but most, if not all, required personal information. I do not recommend this app for anyone. It’s also pretty hard to play as well. I tried doing the easy level, but even that’s pretty hard! I have a few suggestions for you to make improvements on your game. 1. There should be a guided tutorial of the song you choose, as a beginner level. What I mean is you tell the person playing exactly how to play, but you start at a slow pace. Maybe if you created something like this, you would have better reviews. 2. You should have 7 days within downloading of all of the songs being free. So if someone just downloaded this game, they could enjoy browsing and playing all of the songs for a whole week. After that is up, you could ask them if they want to pay for a membership. 3. You should try to make songs easier, and more fun to play. Don’t you think that it’s kind of hard to start playing with 1 finger, and then going to two back and forth, then playing with 3 fingers, while also playing with 1 and 2 fingers, and then on top of all of that playing with 4 fingers!!?! Wow. That was the hard level anyways. The medium is the hard level without 4 fingers. And the easy level is 1 to 2 fingers. Maybe you should have a super easy one with only 1 finger, or one with only 2,3,or 4 fingers. And last but not least, 4. You should add more encouraging words at the top. So I mean when you are going too fast, it says, ‘’play slower’’ or when you are playing too slow, it says, ‘‘ play faster’’. I think that you guys should have ‘’ oops you are playing too fast, try playing a little slower’’ or ‘’ oops you are playing too slow, try playing a little faster’’, to encourage the little kids who are playing this game. That’s all because overall, this is a pretty sweet game, but I don’t think that I will download it again anytime soon unless you add one or more of the changes I have suggested. Thanks, and bye. Btw, I’m a 12 year old so please take that into consideration if there are any words that I spelled wrong. Thanks again, bye.
I did horrible
by waffel lover on 2019/04/19 20:50
Yay I did terrible at everything
Used to be good...
by GraceTK on 2019/04/19 11:50
This app was a very fun addicting game that I would play everyday. I started to get involved with the daily challenge and I actually started winning each time. I love the idea of composing music on there and buying new songs with the digital currency in game... BUT, the game started glitching bad for me in the end. After every song I played, there would be an ad about some game I absolutely don’t care about whatsoever. This caused a lot of lag and it would kick me out of the game halfway through the songs, including the daily challenge, so I couldn’t compete anymore. Now, it’s even worse and I can’t even get in the game. I will get on the app (which I kept in my favorites folder), but it only shows the loading screen. I remember I was sat for a quarter of an hour waiting for it, but then I decided it wasn’t worth it. The game had a bad ending with me. I will be deleting it and I part from this game giving it a 2 stars.
Good but.... ha I made you read
by PAT12 BROWNS18 on 2019/04/18 21:46
It makes my arm hurts after a while and it hurts my arm and it is mostly inaccurate with the songs that have the most liked for example I got “When I’m Gone” by Eminem and it only got the one part and not The Whole thing.I don’t wanna make this long cuz I am lazy
Very nice
by Dayana6688 on 2019/04/18 06:07
I really love it! ❤️
$mule!
by hamster🤗 on 2019/04/18 04:02
What happened to free?!?! 9.99 a month. I used to love this game but now u have to pay plus that adds have gone crazy! 😡
Fun! But one thing...
by meloveslither.oi on 2019/04/17 23:02
OMG LOVE THIS GAME. Noting wrong with it EXCEPT... when you get to higher levels I would like some more coins
SO MANY ADS!!!!!!!!!
by Crash bait on 2019/04/17 21:31
Every time I play a song there’s an ad😡😡😡
Things need to change
by DemetriusisBee on 2019/04/17 02:24
The game isn't bad but the adds are horrible I can't go five seconds without one and for the achievements only give one or two coins with most of the songs costing twenty five coins plus the VIP all of the songs that most people like are VIP and you expect people to waste there money on this the game has gotten worse than when it started compared to when it started it didn't have nearly as many adds this needs to change
Makes me mad
by doggy lover11111874638 on 2019/04/16 22:25
Ok first I tried to open the app (this wasn’t the first time it happened) and I wouldn’t open. It just started as the smule screen and froze for like 5 mins. I finally gave up and left the app for a much better game. Another thing that makes me mad abt this app is the paying for literally EVERYTHING. You get maybe 15 free songs and you have to pay for the rest. For the people who’s parents don’t let them buy coins and all, don’t bother getting
I’m just really mad.
by tdttxyc on 2019/04/16 21:26
I have to play songs I dislike. One song and I get one coin, and once I pay 25 I get a song and I can only play it once?! Then If I want to play the song again, I have to buy the expensive trial (I’m broke so this was a let down) I also have to watch adds at the start and end of each song, which would not be a problem to me but for all the shorter songs, really? The rest of the app is ok but I am still deleting the app, I do not have space on my phone for something that has these problems. I could write more but I’m trying not to be too harsh but I would like to say what’s on my mind and for that I’ll give it two stars.
Awesome
by olivia m a on 2019/04/16 17:57
Great game
I don’t know
by Waffles8058 on 2019/04/16 02:45
I love this and I will keep playing it
Ugh
by thisgameisidk on 2019/04/16 01:07
I had to delete my very hard worked on song because it wouldn’t load. WOW SmuleTM.
I can’t open it
by nonicknameisnottaken on 2019/04/16 01:00
I love this game but recently I haven’t been able to open it! :(
To many adds
by Nicholas Doulis on 2019/04/15 23:39
The game is fun but after every song I get an add like come on I just want to play and I’m not buying the subscription thing because I have no money so can you please have an add every 1-2:10 or something
This is a Penny Pincher Game!
by giasadowski1 on 2019/04/15 22:34
Ok.. so, at first the game looks fun and relaxing, but that’s deceiving.. first off, most of the songs cost this smoola currency and it costs money to buy it! Also, if you do watch an ad to get free smoola, it’s fake. You get the smoola but it messes up the entire game.. so I wanted to buy a song and it said transfer problem or something like that and I tried again.. I did not get the song! Also, you only get one smoola per level! That’s stupid, considering the songs and stuff are 25 smoola. If you go on a trial, you get more! It’s so dumb.. also, the game expects you to be perfect by saying you fingers are ‘to far to the left’ or ‘to slow’ when your fingers are almost exactly on the keys! Do you really expect us to move our fingers with the keys? You’ve got to be kidding! I think this game does not make me (or many others) very happy. I think this game or possibly the brand is just trying to get money from people, so don’t waste your time unless your looking for a disappointment 😑
One of the worst music apps
by Ba$ketball&Track⭐️ on 2019/04/15 03:42
I have tried so many times to connect or download a song to play and this app would not let me and I have perfect WiFi and data. This app is very slow and does not have up to date songs also this app just takes too long to load at anything
THIS ISNT A 5-STAR REVIEW!
by Idonthaveafuckingnicknamd on 2019/04/14 21:14
This app used to be so fun, but went downhill so fast. Here’s a list of things wrong with this app: 1). It’s all about the money. 2). You have to pay to play HALF of the songs on this app. 3). “Too far left” and “too far right” no one cares a single bit, Smule. 4). When your weekly subscription is over, even if you DELETE THE APP, it STILL makes you pay. This happened with FOUR of my friends, all of which are VERY angry. CONCLUSION: get it together, Smule.
App stopped working.
by Unicorns4life🦄💕 on 2019/04/14 20:03
Ever since the new update was released, the app has not been able to open up for me anymore. Please fix this.
To much add’s
by myusernameiscupcakequeen11276 on 2019/04/14 18:59
So my brother used to play this or/and still plays it but when I watch him it’s just a lot of adds and barely even the game.. other games it’s just like, Press this button for add! Or, Skip stage for add.. but this game has to much adds.
Good but to much 🤑
by jcedfbwryn on 2019/04/14 16:30
I like this game but to much $$$$$$$.if you fix to have not soo much 🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑,I will probably get this game again!! Please 👍🏽💗
usually good but update not working
by Dingdingdongdingdong13256 on 2019/04/14 10:31
after the most recent update it gives me only a loading screen and won’t do anything else
Guys...plz stop the ads
by MewMewKissyCutie1234 on 2019/04/14 00:57
I love this app and it’s songs! I love composer and only one thing ruins it...the ads. You finish a song and there is an ad. You tap something, there is an ad. Plz stop!!!
I can not do anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by yghgbghhhjhgnn on 2019/04/14 00:55
You really can’t play anything and one level gets you one coin and it’s 25 coins for one song .P.S I want to play queen!
Opening
by A Little Mix Fan Girl on 2019/04/13 23:01
The app within itself is a fun app, if you subtract all the ads. But, recently I’ve been having issues with the app opening. I will click on the app and it will bring me to the Smule Piano title page, but will not advance forward to the app itself. I’ve had to redownload it for it open, which is very annoying. I have the iPhone Xs, so the issue is not about the phone, it is about the app itself.
not addicted to this app anymore
by robokitty1000.1 on 2019/04/13 22:23
This app was good for me since I was like 8 now I’m really frustrated how there’s ads probably every 7 seconds I thought if this keeps on happening I’ll delete it oh yesterday I got home my phone was done charging I went to my music everything was gone this had got me frustrated
Omg I love it soooo much!
by Aahildy on 2019/04/13 18:45
Look at the title it explains what I’m trying to say ok..?! OK
Ads, too far left, $
by hnfjfdrhuxjfncj hd on 2019/04/13 14:50
So I played this game a long time ago and I loved it, and about a month ago I rediscovered it. Overall, this app is not good at all for a few reasons. First of all, this app plays an ad after every song and it plays one before and after for the free songs anytime you want to play it. Smule is extremely greedy. Second, whenever I play this on my phone, it always says I’m playing too far left or too far right and when I try to push my fingers together, it just reads it as one finger so I can never get a perfect. Third, almost all of the most popular songs right now are for vip only which makes smule even more greedy because literally all they want is money and its really annoying. Fourth, it takes you a while to level up and when you do, all it gives you is ONE smoola and rarely a song. The average price for a song is like 25 smoola so imagine how long it would take you to get 25. This used to be a good app, but honestly, I’m disappointed at what it has become
Mo Money, Mo Money
by NanaM54 on 2019/04/13 00:16
This app is actually a lot of fun and I’d gladly pay a small fee to add new songs but there is no way I’m going to pay a monthly or yearly fee (which is pretty hefty compared to most apps). If you don’t upgrade you are barraged with ad after ad after ad after ad.....
I call subscribe
by An2983 on 2019/04/12 21:50
Whenever I try to subscribe for a free trial, it says Thai I’m subscribed, but I don’t get any benefits please help!
Not amused
by pwooster54 on 2019/04/12 14:53
I played this app normally, and I entered the week trial. I later deleted the app but everyday it appears on my phone again and charges me even though I erased my data. I’m angry about this because this game takes my data and money.
Good but too many ads
by yungfuccs on 2019/04/12 06:29
It’s good when I can play but there are too many ads! Ad after every song. Ad before each new song. You get double ads from certain songs. Update: can’t even play now game freezes in loading
Eh
by youdumbdumbgivemegumgum on 2019/04/11 12:04
I kinda like it
Ripoff!
by markhutch428 on 2019/04/11 02:35
You will never be able to cancel this service! It is a ripoff! Do not download even the “Free App” - you will be ripped off !!! I have not been able to cancel this $8.99/month charge for a year! RIPOFF
Why the ads
by wjehwgsh on 2019/04/10 22:53
Ok ok, I know a lot of people have complained and probably have the exact same argument but I love this game. It really is a great game, except for the adds. I deleted it because I couldn’t not get an ad. I hate them so much that I justa deleted them, and also remember I have anger issues so I almost broke my phone because I get mad EASILY. So that’s my complaint, great game but way to many ads. Also there aren’t that many songs by people I know. And people always make fake songs, my friend who also deleted it, bought a cool song, he liked it out of the game, the little video showed the song, but when he bought it... IT WAS TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR. Please look at the songs that are there and play them to make sure they match the video please and thank you.
Wow
by fyfffbjfjffgrvuftdshyjftrju on 2019/04/10 20:27
Wow just awesome
Fun game but ridiculous amount of ads
by jakjaaja on 2019/04/10 18:21
Super fun game but unless you are willing to pay, before and after every single song you are forced to watch an ad which is a bit excessive in my opinion. The amount of songs you are able to play without paying is very limited and in order to earn “coins” you have to watch ads or pay. There are so many ads that it leads people to delete the app rather than wanting to pay to play more songs especially because all you’re doing is tapping your fingers on your phone. The amount of ads is ridiculous and the game would be more appealing and fun with less ads.
No longer opens
by Rosie2247 on 2019/04/09 22:04
I’m not sure what happened. But the app just doesn’t anymore. I have tried reinstalling it but nothing. Fix this issue
Not the least bit enjoyable.
by drButt on 2019/04/09 18:04
I downloaded it to get premium currency for another game and holy smokes this game is a dumpster fire. It does have some neat songs though.
It use to be fun, but now....
by SilvetWolf on 2019/04/09 03:37
I’m disappointed. It’s hard enough to get coins for new songs if you’d rather not pay for a membership. An ad every few songs were annoying back then, but reasonable. Now it’s an ad to download a song, ad to replay the song, add to continue after the song. Buying a piano or keyboard is way worth it. It’s more fun with a wide range of free songs and not having to deal with ads all the time.
Awful ads
by A_critic_6000 on 2019/04/09 02:11
This crap is why people pirate apps
Ads and Smules or whatever
by 7DM AURA on 2019/04/09 02:09
Full of ads that are difficult to work around, bad money work, I signed in to Facebook and it gave me nothing, can’t we just play songs and enjoy the game??
I’m a little upset
by Sharko_24 on 2019/04/08 19:07
The app starts of very good. Good sound quality and lots of user friendliness. However, I bought the all access pass and got to play some vip songs. After my time expired (which was very short seeming how I paid quite a good bit of money for) I could no longer play any of my songs. I suggest that once you play a song on the vip pass, you should be able to keep it. Also, the songs to buy with the games currency are quite expensive, especially considering that the currency is very hard to come by. My final remark is that the vip pass is very expensive, maybe drop the price a little and make a permanent option? Overall a good game to start with, but a decent amount of room for improvement.
It’s amazing a few fixes tho
by five stars girls on 2019/04/08 15:37
This game is absolutely amazing I love all of the songs they are difficult I like that.... But it could use a few fixes like it does freeze a lot that is a little bit annoying if you guys could fix that that would make my day also about the memberships why do all of every ones favorite song require a membership I am a little disappointed about that but it’s is still an amazing app a few another thing why is there so many pop ups after every song you have to either watch a video or see another pop up it is very annoying if you guys could fix it that would be great this app needs a few fixes but that’s ok because I still rated it 5 stars it is an amazing app I love it is addicting, fun, challenging, and I absolutely love it thanks for making this game such a successful game for every one😎😁😊🥳🤩
It WONT stop PAUSING
by I won't tell you stalkers on 2019/04/08 08:49
The app is great, but I have two main things. First of all, every single time I have to play a four finger note, it will pause the song and I will have to hit resume OVER AND OVER. I don’t know what’s going on but i have been avoiding hard songs because us continually have to hit resume. UPDATED I am so glad you guys have changed it so you can play four finger notes in settings. Except it’s not in settings. The picture demonstrates the little switch you need to turn off, but the little switch ISNT in settings. Maybe there is an iOS update that took it away, but y’all need to work on it.
Good Game...But there could be improvements...

I've been playing this game for about a month or so and at first I really loved it... But now it's really starting to get boring. It takes forever to level up to either get the 2 coins or a new song. The songs that I am given are very hit or miss, considering that I'm not a huge fan of classical or pop music. I was really excited to play rock, but I've only got one to two songs... I can't even buy a song because I don't have the coins to. I go through the songs rather quickly because of the way I have to play the game. Levels that require three or four fingers do not register for me, so for four fingers I have to double tap two fingers and for three fingers I have to do it in a 1,2,3 motion instead of all 3 fingers down or else I'm told that I'm using to many fingers. Update: I have deduced my review down to 1 star. While the issues I previously mentioned 2 years ago are still happening. The main reason for the update is to say about the ridiculous amount of advertisements. ADs are shown at every possible chance and it completely takes away from the enjoyment of the game.
Deleting
by rondooolyRN on 2019/04/08 02:56
Been playing for years on different accounts; one paid, a couple unpaid. Unpaid (non-VIP) version—TOO MANY ADS. TOO EXPENSIVE! What used to be $40 a year is now $99. No thanks. There are comparable apps with a similar design and just as fun, if not more so, for free. Goodbye, Smule..
Hot garbage fueled with corporate greed
by Stuffness 22 on 2019/04/07 23:14
Save yourself some Time, money, and brain cells and DO NOT get this app. Smule does exactly what any terrible mobile game company would do except they don’t even bother to hide it. Here’s the process of an experience with this app. Saying that the object of the game is just tapping the notes would be plain wrong. You don’t even have to be clicking on the notes or anywhere near them to get a good score, you just have to do it at the right time, which they make way too easy as the notes slo-mo through the mark. After about every song they litter you with ads, and every 2 seconds they ask for a “free” trial of a “premium” addition. All this does is make you tap the screen aimlessly to a small selection of searchable songs (which you can do on YouTube for free). You get a week of free trial then get charged 8$ a month after that. The problem with this that the trial doesn’t end automatically, and after a week roles by it’ll start to charge you, and if you don’t manually go to the App Store, select the app, and stop the trial, it will keep charging forever. This seems simpleton prevent, but most people forget about this bland excuse of a game less than 2 hours after downloading, and will most likely delete it, but it will still charge you money even when you’re clearly not benefiting from it. This is mainly targeted to children, who don’t understand this scam, and won’t figure out until their parents do 6 months later.
Not sure what happened
by MrMikieMike on 2019/04/07 20:13
This game used to be great. Now I’m experiencing crashes and extremely long wait time to open the app. The past two days haven’t been able to open app, it just stays on the opening/ loading screen.
5 FREE Smoola is a rip off...
by XGhostyYT on 2019/04/07 15:43
Ok. I have 22 Smoola and I’m trying to get enough to buy sadness and sorrow but when I tap it the ad pops up (wich Is a good thing) and the the ad finishes and my Smoola loads only back to 22 and it’s really annoying 😡 I don’t like it when that happens and I then have to reload the game! That’s just dumb the Smoola SHOULD just load to the amount you need. Plz fix this problem. Then I will give a 5 star..
Composition Problems
by SamMcPie on 2019/04/07 15:38
There are a couple of things that I’d like to say for every person who’s into the composing feature. 1. When you try and scroll up it sticks the to beginning of the bar and glitches back every time. 2. When you reach the end of your “composition”, it makes the pause/play button a go back to the start of your 100 bar song button, which gets pretty annoying because I tend to stop it myself. 3. Fix the whole thing where you go to click play or zoom in and out of different divisions and then it accidentally places a note or two. Make the two finger zoom better. 4. Add lower notes, at least a couple. That is all so I hope you can fine this stuff!!!
Great app for the most part.
by Queen of the animals!! on 2019/04/07 13:55
I have had some fun with this app but there ARE a lot of thinks that you really should fix. You can’t get enough smoola to get any songs! You’d have to be level 25 to get enough smoola for one song! Sometimes you can pick a free one, but as far as I’ve seen, it’s really rare. I liked it until I mastered the eight songs I could play. I might re download the app if there’s an easier way to get smoola or if you added more free songs! That’s why it only got 4 stars from me, sorry. 😞
Chill with the ads
by Jo123658 on 2019/04/07 03:39
Every time I finish a stinking song, an ad plays. Let me at least enjoy playing the game.
It’s Getting Worse...
by Team Coley (Coley) on 2019/04/06 22:28
The first time I played this app, I absolutely loved it. It was so addicting and I would play it everyday. Recently, I have been getting farther and farther from playing it. Every time I try to tap with four fingers, the song pauses. Due to this I’ve been getting 3,000 place in the daily challenges which is very infuriating. I really want to delete the app but I am willing to give Smule one more chance. Please fix this problem or else I a, deleting every Smule app I have. Very frustrated 😡😡
here goes...
by katelyn.fischer on 2019/04/06 21:03
ok. so, i love this app. i love composing songs and playing other people’s songs. i had the VIP membership and got SO MANY SONGS and i had to cancel it (6 months later) bc i was still using my dads credit card for it instead of mine. all of the songs i got are now gone and idk how i can get them back bc i had over 200 (i think) and now i have 100 or so. i just want my songs back ;-;
Ad volume obnoxiously and dangerously high
by flprost on 2019/04/06 10:13
I am deleting this app after having it for years. The ads are too frequent and obnoxiously loud. The volume of the music during play is soft, so you have to turn up the volume a lot. Then, when an ad comes on, and that is far too frequently, it is so loud that it hurts my ears. I’ve stopped playing because it’s no longer enjoyable due to greed of developer for ad money and obnoxiously loud ads. Skip this app! Developer is a greedy jerk who doesn’t care about anything but earning ad money.
won’t open
by lxstfxndom on 2019/04/06 08:56
the game is great but it won’t open at the moment? update: i have to delete the app every time i want to open it :/
I know...
by Fireheart556 on 2019/04/05 21:36
I know... there are a LOT of ads, but PLEASE. It’s out of smiles control. Isn’t it? Otherwise, I think this game is decent!
Songs are missing! 😡
by blvckheartwolf on 2019/04/04 19:54
I got a lot of different songs with the coins that I earned from watching videos. I started to really love the app. Until I went on it to play and all the songs that I got were gone but one. I'm permanently deleting this app what a waste!
Frustratingly difficult
by wetworock on 2019/04/04 01:55
So I came in to this game thinking it would be a fun rhythm game and would be something nice to pass the time. What I got was something that didn’t play like a rhythm game at all. The notes come at you at such a speed that my guitar hero instincts kick in and I try to play them on time with the beat of the music, only for the notes to wait there till I hit them. So I slow down so I hit every note and it ruins the song all together. You’d think this game would be more intuitive for those types of players but overall, I think I’m done with this game for a while. Hopefully it updates in to something good but I highly doubt it.
Bad App and has Weekly subscriptions beware
by Ragu V on 2019/04/04 01:41
This kid app has weekly subscriptions and remember to go into your subscriptions through your Apple ID and control. Apple should question these kind of developers that just make money by these silly subscriptions and then blame it on customers.

Still great, but there’s a few things
by hellonoel on 2019/04/03 16:55
I’ve had this app for a VERY long time and it’s always been one of my favorites since I love music. But i’ve been noticing now that most of my favorite songs i can’t play. I used to just have to level up or watch ads for coins to buy more songs which doesn’t really bother me, but now i’d have to pay for a VIP membership. I don’t think it’s the membership is a great idea. I know it’s a way for the app to make more money and all, but it decreases the amount of players overall. Another thing to look at is the crazy amount of ads. Every time I click out of a song I get an ad. The same thing happens when I click to play some songs. I think it’s just too many and maybe start minimizing the amount of ads? The app would be MUCH better.
They really tried it💀
by niamah123 on 2019/04/03 01:30
This app really desperate for money, they really play an ad before and after a song. You can only play like five free songs and that’s it. Tell me why I have to put my dads credit card info for the free trial‼️⁉️ Theys lucky I even gave them one star.
Heaters group up cuz this ones bad

Hate it trash
I love it, but there’s one thing I think could make it better
by Goldenangelfox on 2019/04/02 00:43
So, as a beginner who’s just learning how to actually play piano, this app has been quite useful. The only thing I think could help is if we had the ability to actually learn the song on piano. Reason being, some of the songs I would like to learn to play are available on this app but not on YouTube. Thanks for you time~
Too many ads
by Sugakookies147 on 2019/04/01 22:46
Can you stop putting so many ads?! And can you put more coins for the achievement and stop putting everything for VIP? What’s the point in downloading the game anyways if everything is just VIP. Might as well pay for it when you download it. That’s so annoying. I’m so done with this.
I’ve seen worse...
by Des Backer on 2019/04/01 18:04
I’ve seen worse piano apps, but this one is not the best either. I play this on my iPad (I figured it would be easier to play with a larger interface), and the controls of it drive me insane. I don’t know if it is something I am doing, or if it is something that I need to change, but every time I go to play a four finger chord, it pauses, and then when I un-pause it, it ruins the long streak that I had going. I have to figure out a specific position to put my fingers in (such as rolling my fingers across the screen instead of playing simultaneously) and it’s more frustrating than anything. Another thing is that all of the songs cost something (25 smoolas I think????) and it is almost impossible to save up enough money to buy a new song. The last time I bought a new song was maybe October and I only have 10 smoolas saved up. It’s kinda ridiculous. The reason this is getting two stars instead of one is because the composition part of the software is very easy and fun to play with, and as a music major, I can appreciate that. Also, the ads that pop up in this game are annoying! Especially when it’s an ad for another app that Smule owns. And I personally think that after you watch an ad for a “free” song, that you should be able to play all levels of difficulties under that ad, not just the easy mode of that song. It’s very obnoxious. Another problem I keep seeming to have is that the app won’t open to the game after I click on it. It will sit on the loading screen for however long (my patience wears thin after about 3 minutes). Exiting the app and then opening it again does not help either. It just continues to do the same thing. Only sometimes does it actually open at a respectable speed. I probably have not played the actual game for about a moth because it continues to do that. Now, again, I don’t know if it’s because of the capabilities of this app and it’s partnership with iPad, but you’d think that it should still work regardless. I’d really like to see of the issues be fixed. It is quite an addicting game, and very fun. My music theory/aural skills teacher also really likes it and thinks it is important for teaching piano positions and coordination! This could really be a top notch app!
0 stars
by KAZOO DOGO on 2019/03/31 16:36
I am only putting one star because I can’t put zero this app is a scam they have been charging me for a month for things I didn’t buy and continue too I deleted the app the day I got it and am being charged 10 dollars a week.
Don’t delete ever!!!
by T-homicide on 2019/03/31 03:15
If you’ve had this game on your phone for a while and have all the songs still to this day then good if not and you have deleted this app then you will no longer be able to have the songs that you have already purchased as that is what happened to me..did not have this game on my phone for about six months because my phone broke, re-downloaded it, got my account back, and was no longer able to play my songs...even AFTER restoring purchases. this game is a scam just to get money nothing more from smule for me BOYCOTT SMULE!!!
Too difficult...
by unhappy user12343 on 2019/03/31 02:28
I used to play this game all the time but now it’s just getting annoyingly difficult. Really underrating. Also, TOO MANY ADS! I get an ad before I play then after I play. I spend more time watching ads then I do actually playing the game. 0/10, this game absolutely lost its touch. I highly don’t recommend.
A good app but...
by wooptydillydoo on 2019/03/30 16:19
I want to delete it because of how many ads there are. I understand having like a few like one before or after a song and maybe having an optional ad to watch for coins but ads BEFORE EVERY song AFTER ever single song sometimes DURING a song and at random times while I’m browsing. That’s little much in my opinion. I know you can get premium but think about users who obviously aren’t going to use this option!
too many ads

2 many ADS and GLITHING
by Haltingcutekittycat on 2019/03/30 02:20
Honestly I like the game but 2 MANY ADS I mean they can calm down and when I turn my WIFI off it says I can’t play! And half of the good songs are VIP and not everyone can get VIP like MEH! and the lag.... when I play a song it lags hardcore and messes me up! But for some odd reason I can’t delet it so I guess it gets some credit for that?
Keeps Showing A Menu
by UnicornKittyCookie123 on 2019/03/29 03:43
When I try and play the 4 finger one, it always shows up a menu when I am trying to play an messes me up. A lot of ads. You even need ads to get free songs, so when I am in the car all I have are my songs and only 1+ smule after each level. It is really hard to get stars when it messes me up on 4 fingers. Please update your game and update the things I named.
Horrible
by musision on 2019/03/29 01:52
I was playing it one day and I was on a song and I had three stars and it was about to level me up when it said you have to pay to continue
too many ads!
by Pixelchan on 2019/03/28 21:05
TOO MANY ADS! I can’t even get a stress free gameplay in! i used to like this game, but now every click i make goes straight to an ad!!!
To many ads now
by Beast kide on 2019/03/28 19:57
The game is fun and easy but the ads are too much after you finish a song an add pops up and last like over 15-20 seconds It gets really annoying at-least make the game show less ads and not make an ad pop up after a song But other then the ads The game is really fun to play 😀
WHO MADE THIS MASTERPIECE?
by 🌪☄️🔥FireStar🔥☄️🌪 on 2019/03/28 17:56
I love this app. I am not allowed on YouTube and the only music I can listen to is Kidz Bop, which changes the lyrics to the good songs and makes me dislike the songs they re-write. I like how you can select hard, medium, or easy so it can go how easy or hard you can play the song. It is also nice because sometimes you can sing to the song. I really suggest this app for you if you like music. Thank you far considering this message. 😉😉😉

How do I get out?
by Grandpa Sherm on 2019/03/26 04:56
When I signed up, they said if I didn’t like the program I could cancel anytime within seven days. I signed up to check out what was offered and to see if my granddaughter would be able to use it. There does not seem to be any actual way to use this app and learn how to play piano. The talent required to play this app is the ability to tap your finger on the screen at dots. Maybe monkeys would get a kick out of these sounds this app makes for hitting the dots at the right moment. Now I am faced with trying to find where and how I can cancel my subscription. I am locked into a $10 a month automatic payment, and still have not been able to find out how to change or stop the payment, or to cancel my subscription
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
Fun to play, but not my style
by FoxeGamer01 on 2019/02/28 05:04
I’ve downloaded this app on and off lately, for separate reasons. First of all, I hate all of these ads! I mean, sometimes every time you enter a different song, the same ad pops up. So on top of having to watch these stupid ads for different games, it’s the same one over and over and over. It’s so annoying that I’ve purposely turned off my Wi-Fi just to get rid of ads. It’s ridiculous! Second of all, I hate that the achievements give you only one or two coins! I mean, about eighty percent of the songs cost twenty five coins! And you work so hard on a single achievement to only get one coin? It’s stupid! Last but not least, there’s the case of this VIP stuff! I mean, half the songs in the entire app is in the VIP section! And almost all of my favorite songs are in the VIP section! It’s just not fair. Why should we spend our money on some stupid things like VIP memberships when eventually we’re gonna delete the game for all these reasons! Basically what this game- and all games in fact- is saying is that instead of using money to buy exciting things, we’re using it for an online item that isn’t real. It’s ridiculous, it’s stupid, and it’s a waste of money. Even though I somewhat enjoyed the game, all of these things are making my interests go down! Fix these things!
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Ads, ads, ads, and ads.
by truckload of ads on 2018/11/22 06:21
Jesus Christ where do I even begin? Ok well I’ve had this game for a few years now and I swear to god it’s never been this bad. I always exit a song just before it ends to avoid watching an ad, because they’re literally after EVERY song. Not to mention before AND after free songs, which to be fair there’s a lack of, but I’m not sure I could consider that a good thing either. I have a lot of songs, over 131. So explain to me why there’s only 131 songs in the “my songs” section? Anytime I buy a new song, it doesn’t get added to the list, a problem which just recently started happening to me. There’s no way I’m gonna look up a song every time I wanna play it when it’s supposed to be added to the list for the convenience of the player. THIS BUG NEEDS TO BE FIXED. I tried looking up the songs again, and playing them through again, even beating them on all difficulties, to try and see if it got them added to the list. And it did.... until I closed the app and reopened it that is. Did I also mention that there’s way too many ads? I did? Well the game will shove it in your face again. Something needs to be done, this app is no longer of good quality from the bugs and there’s too many ads, earning smule undeserved money, the company is solely based on greed now.
Very good, but some flaws.
by Trtplayer on 2019/02/24 17:46
Your game is very good and I honestly think it could be quite more famous. But there are some flaws... take the amount of ads for example... every time you finish a song, ad. Whenever you want to play a song in the free song list, and I quote,”your free content will be available after this message!” And then an ad. I feel like you just went a little overboard with the ads. And second of all MEMBERSHIPS. People already know that memberships are becoming a problem. They attract you into buying them, they give you a free trial, and they make it so almost everything is membership only. I counted that vip only song list in the menu. Over (drumroll please) 700 SONGS. You might wanna check how much you do to non-members. Finally, this isn’t too much of a complaint but just a thing to tell you. You’re age rating is 4+ right? Well.... Whenever I have to rack up smoola I watch ads and one of them has been catching my eye. You might wanna check your advertising because one of the ads legit has 18+ in the corner and the end of the ad even says,” adult game for adult emotions.” But so yeah just check your ads every so often and I feel like that this game could be much better
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.
WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
They just won’t listen.
by CaraH628 on 2019/02/12 17:17
Okay, so I just had a peaceful few days of not having ads after every song, and now they’re back! -_- ugh (This is the review I wrote before) So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!
by Alcrex0260 on 2017/11/15 03:31
Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
Disappointing
by uwu 4 u on 2019/01/13 04:55
Ideally this would be a great app. It was fun for a bit but there is really not that much you can do without spending money. Smoola, their currency, is soooo hard to obtain. There are these achievements you can get but after the first few easy ones you realize that the rest are impossible to get. You have to play more songs to get the achievements that get you smoola, but to be able to play those songs you have to buy them with smoola. Either way you need smoola and the only way to get it is to buy it with real money. There are tons of ads just to play song that last only one or two minutes. Whenever I saved up enough smoola ( a rare occurrence) I was so happy because that means I could get a song. So over the course of the few years that I have had this app, I have been able to buy ONLY FOUR SONGS! (I don't use this app that often, maybe once a week or a bit more). I also wish there was a way to preview the songs before you buy them. For two out of my four purchased songs, I have been disappointed with the way they sound. This app would be so much better if you didn't have to spend so much money to enjoy it.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Greek American on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
Time for a change!
by On the second day on 2017/08/10 18:03
I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16
This is the best game I have ever played in my life I play it all night an day literally I am obsessed with this game.

AWESOMENESS, MOSTLY‼️‼️🎹🎼🎶🎵
by Sookie words and more on 2017/08/18 20:23
Magic Piano is SO fun but also SO too funny‼️‼️I'm reading reviews and SMH!! Many if not most of us are far from Bach or Mozart but Magic Piano gives us an opportunity to at least feel like we can actually play a piano!! Realistically, though, NOT!! Now I hear ya about these darn, often occurring, loud ads, they are quite troublesome but at least you can get smules but 1 is not equal to each ad in my opinion. Now granted I love it when I play a song and people in the same room can recognize and identify the song I'm actually trying to play!! I did learn much from reading the reviews in regards to options within the app. such as you can practice, pause, play songs people like us have composed vs. actual composers and so on so I think I can enjoy the experience even better. It's always a plus and boost to the old ego when you play well enough to to unlock more songs and level up!! Thumbs up for me👍🏼👌🏽😜👏🏼👏🏼🎹🎧🎤
Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.
Glitchy and too many ads
by luka / ルーカ on 2018/06/13 03:05
I’m not too sure if this has happened to anybody, but I’ve recently been going into the app only to find that the songs I’ve purchased are not appearing. Typically, the “My Songs” tab only showed the songs you’ve earned when you’ve leveled up, and took a few seconds to show the songs you’ve bought. Now the songs I’ve bought don’t show up at all, and if I want to play a certain song I have to look it up. Super annoying since I have the tendency to scroll and pass something I want to play without thinking about it first. On the other hand, the ads are just too much. After almost every song I play that has a difficulty (not going into the section where it says “Practice) an ad pops up. Having the ads when you are trying to earn Smoola without playing a song makes sense, but having it after every song played is just flat out tedious. Aside from the glitches and ads, the app is pretty fun to play around with. If it didn’t have these problems, I’d probably be on it more often, but the app is slowly being ruined for me.
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Fun, but...
by cheese1342🧀🧀🧀🧀 on 2018/05/09 03:26
I love the app and all, but I have some suggestions. First of all, for the sing jams thing, could you make an option for it, the option being not having to hit the exact note thing. Second, for the composer option, can you make it easy to figure out how to change the timing so the song you made doesn't go really slow? It frustrates me because other people's songs are the right tempo, but my songs never are. Third, when your searching for a song, could you make an option for only songs composed by smule show up? Sometimes, I don't want other people's songs because they can be wrong. Sometimes I want the actual correct version, if of course, smule made the song. That's it for now, so please make the changes. Other than that stuff, it's a great app. Oh, and one more thing, there are too many adds. And they come up too often. If you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO HAVE ADDS, please make them different. I'm so sick of seeing your karaoke app's add. It just makes me not want to play this game or get the karaoke app.
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Good Game...But there could be improvements...
by Rockstar3m5 on 2019/04/08 07:13
I've been playing this game for about a month or so and at first I really loved it... But now it's really starting to get boring. It takes forever to level up to either get the 2 coins or a new song. The songs that I am given are very hit or miss, considering that I'm not a huge fan of classical or pop music. I was really excited to play rock, but I've only got one to two songs... I can't even buy a song because I don't have the coins to. I go through the songs rather quickly because of the way I have to play the game. Levels that require three or four fingers do not register for me, so for four fingers I have to double tap two fingers and for three fingers I have to do it in a 1,2,3 motion instead of all 3 fingers down or else I'm told that I'm using to many fingers. Update: I have deduced my review down to 1 star. While the issues I previously mentioned 2 years ago are still happening. The main reason for the update is to say about the ridiculous amount of advertisements. ADs are shown at every possible chance and it completely takes away from the enjoyment of the game.
Not Sure What to Think
by BlitzyWolf on 2019/01/21 02:29
I grew up playing this and thought it was amazing. However, after deleting it after a few years and deciding to revisit a childhood memory...it most certainly disappointed me. The constant ads drive me insane whenever I play various songs of a relatively short duration. Not only that, but being able to afford the songs I wish to play is just depressing to look at without the means of spending money. Although I understand there must be ads and a reason to become a VIP to earn money, I don’t see a purpose strong enough to convince me to spend a penny on this app. On a different note, I’ve played this on my iPad and have found it exceedingly frustrating to attempt playing songs on a hard difficulty due to the four finger taps available during them, because it pauses the song and brings up a menu from the bottom about half of the times I try to play the four finger notes. I’m unsure why a pausing mechanic like that was implemented into the game due to inconvenience and how unnecessary it is. So, I highly doubt that I will return to using this app unless some of its serious issues are properly addressed.
It’s great but more
by kelly old mellie on 2018/07/23 05:50
I love this app you can play really good songs and especially I love how you put Beethoven songs I love playing them every day I love listening to music it just is pretty easy but I like it the only thing is I hate when you have to watch an ad before you play one of your favorite songs please just get rid of this these ads because like I’m starting to hate this app but I really love it and I love just like everything and it’s really nice how you put every song but and I don’t like how you have to cost coins for it and I just wanted to be like you know how on karaoke you can choose whatever song you want by now on this you don’t choose like what song you want and I want to choose whatever song I want to play but I can’t because I’m trying to practice on my 🎹 even though I love it and the only thing is just get rid of all the ads😘😛😠 all at the same time
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
It’s amazing a few fixes tho

This game is absolutely amazing I love all of the songs they are difficult I like that.... But it could use a few fixes like it does freeze a lot that is a little bit annoying if you guys could fix that that would make my day also about the memberships why do all of every ones favorite song require a membership I am a little disappointed about that but it’s is still an amazing app a few another thing why is there so many pop ups after every song you have to either watch a video or see another pop up it is very annoying if you guys could fix it that would be great this app needs a few fixes but that’s ok because I still rated it 5 stars it is an amazing app I love it is addicting, fun, challenging, and I absolutely love it thanks for making this game such a successful game for every one😎😁😊🥳🤩
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule

I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!
by WaterAirFireEarth on 2018/07/13 02:05
Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
This is not fair
by Frankiew0415060 on 2017/09/23 14:25
Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again
I love it!- but I absolutely hate it...
by ItsJeffH on 2019/03/21 17:12
It looks like SEVERAL people who have written a review about this app, share the same opinions about the overabundance of advertisements, the ridiculous amount of money it costs to even unlock songs, so you can actually use this app, and finally, the whole VIP membership thing; Smule is ALREADY doing everything they can to get you to spend money on this app, you basically have a "free trial" game, unless you decide to spend real world money on dumb coins to buy one, two songs maybe?- So in order to really play this game (and I must say this game IS a lot of fun once you find a way to simply bypass all of the ads and such) you must pay for either, coins, or go for the VIP membership. If the developer of this app happens to read this, I want you to know that deep down under all the ads and almost required in-app purchases, this is an incredibly fun game. It's like guitar hero but better because you can compose your favorite songs!
It's okay, but...
by D.Mattle on 2017/11/20 21:10
It's a little frustrating when you level up you're rewarded with a song you have already gotten for free. Also, the daily free songs just repeat over and over rarely giving you something you don't already have. One more thing I don't like is that most of the really good songs are only available with a "monthly subscription". That's it, everything else is good. 3 stars Update: I've been playing this game since 2011. It's always had its quirks that made it a pain in one way or another. The last year or so it has gotten so forceful with advertising that it's not even fun anymore. I very rarely play it anymore. Usually if I'm waiting in the car while the wife is shopping or something. There is an ad before and after every song. You can't close it without closing the game. Ridiculous to have to watch a 30 second ad to get your points, so you can watch another ad before you play the same song again at a different difficulty then another ad to get your stars. So I'm taking my previous stars back. Much to greedy anymore.
Good for fun, but not really for a wallet.
by ILuvHetalia on 2018/10/03 02:23
I wanted to use the free trial for a little bit, just to play some of the songs I liked. Well, it reactivated the trial somehow after I cancelled it. I didn’t do anything to reactivate it. And it didn’t even tell me. So, now I’m out $25 cause of it. You guys need to at least say it when you charge for the subscription cause I had no clue it was happening. I don’t have a job of my own, and I was using a credit card my parent opened for me. I hope you guys read this and figure out a way to fix this issue so people know when they’re gonna be charged. Or, instead of telling the, after they’re charged, tell them a few days before so they can cancel if need be. Not only that, but I can’t even access songs I was able to play with the VIP subscription after they were in my songbook. Why not just remove them from the song book rather than taunt players who cancelled their subscription with songs they played. You guys have gone downhill over the years...
What happened?
by OMGitswolfie on 2017/12/23 02:43
What in the world happened to this game?! I'm just a kid and i used to love this game when I was really young where I could play any song and didn't have to pay for any! What happened to that? You guys seem more greedy for money and we need a freaking VIP membership to get songs that is really popular?? WHAT?! Membership costs like 100 bucks! And what's with all the adds?? Everytime I just finish a song an add comes up and most of them are apps I already have! Some adds have sexual content which I shouldn't be seeing! I really enjoy this app but the songs that I love are like 75 coins now! Now I have to copy it and change a note just so I could play it! What's up with all of that stuff?! If the adds get away or the VIP is more cheap like 10 bucks or something more people would buy it instead of making it 100 bucks people wouldn't buy it so expensive! Too many adds are occuring! I give this a 3 stars.
Not much fun anymore!
by DallasFawn on 2018/06/02 22:41
I have been using this app for over 5 years. I loved it and was addicted. I loved challenging myself to play the easy level perfect, then medium, then hard. If I messed up, I restarted. Many songs were quite challenging. I loved it until level 100; the highest you can go. It’s like the developers of the app gave up. No more achievements to earn, no coins for leveling up and no new instruments. How disappointing!! I played this app every day. It was fun, challenging, and relaxing. I agree the VIP members only should be removed. I also would pay a small fee to remove the horrendous amount of ads that I am forced to endure. It was never like that when I started. And I had an issue a year or so back where I had to uninstall and reinstall the app. Lost all my progress. Songs were there but no stars. Like starting all over again. I was upset. So, where once I would have given it 5 stars, I gave 3. I was debating if I should give it a 2. And I forgot to mention the daily challenge of which I never got into the top 50. How did all of us, get an average score of around 1,212 points while 1 person got 2,065. Impossible, and it happened many times. If the developers put better changes in an update and make the app similar to what it used to be, I would give them 5 stars again. I am an older person and I’m disappointed in this app.
This app is horrible.
by Jammapanda on 2017/07/08 03:05
Let me start with the fact that you only earn one smoola every time you level up, which every song costs 25 to 75 smoola so that is very ridiculous also taking into account that to get more than around 30 XP, you have to play a new song. Next the game will tell you that your finger is "too far right" or "too far left" when your finger is exactly on the note which brings down points. The songs are mostly a bunch of crap and if you buy a song that isn't what it says it was you can't return it, no you're stuck with a worthless song. Also let me mention, there is an ad after EVERY SINGLE SONG YOU PLAY. I have the patience to sit through an ad every two to three songs but after every single song? It's ridiculous. You have to pay an $8 a week membership just to play certain songs or not have to use smoola to unlock songs which is absurd. Maybe $8 a month but not a week. A month would be around $32 so a year would be around $500. Wow. This is a horrible app.
This app makes my life much better....
by caddy granny on 2018/10/26 20:52
I’ve played songs on Magic Piano for five years. I’m sorry to see so many complaints in the reviews. I guess they are dissatisfied with the game element. I just play the song book as I have a subscription yearly. It is dang little money to pay for the hours of pleasure it affords me. I’m 78 years old and there is hardly a day goes by that I don’t have my Smule fix. I have mastered over 400 songs pretty much sticking to the traditional, musical theatre, and classical ones. I like to see my scores even though I can’t usually better my highest scores probably posted years ago. My old fingers are not as flexible as they used to be. I love the concerts I play for myself and get great satisfaction in playing my favorites over and over. Use my iPad Pro and love Magic piano. ❤️❤️
To the ruthless complainers
by Jane Spindly on 2017/11/11 02:33
For those who complain about ads, go read a book. They're just a few seconds long, and you can close them easily. If it gives you crashes I'm sorry, but just do what I do: play the entire song except for the last note. Then you can go and play a different one. Yes, that blocks off your experience, but you can just get one of the easy XP 1000+ songs and be rich. And for those who say all the good songs are VIP, go read two books. You do not deserve the pleasure of hearing the masterpieces of Disney orchestras. Musicals have fantastic music too, so please stop complaining about your cool teenage rap songs being unavailable. This is the only app you'll ever need, if you can't see that then you obviously don't recognize how much of a blessing it is.
Garbage
by TheGantos119 on 2017/12/28 19:21
I used to like this app. But now it’s just a cheap excuse for money. There’s too many ads. You have to watch an ad or else you won’t get any score for playing a song. You can’t play offline either, or else it won’t show your songs. You know why? Because ads have to have internet to work. I’m not doing a monthly subscription for smule points either. It’s just a piano app. It’s not like Xbox Live or PlayStation+ where it makes sense to have a monthly subscription. Because with those, you have more than just one game. Not just one where you tap the screen. I just don’t see the point in that. I’m sick of the video ads too. You’re forced to watch one once you finish a song and it gets annoying and repetitive very quickly. Not to mention you have to watch them if you want to get more songs. Or, you could subscribe to smule. Again, I don’t see why anyone would want to do this. If this game was fair and not such an obvious excuse to make a few dollars, I wouldn’t have a problem with it.

ADS
by Mrbossanator103 on 2019/04/24 22:35
The money hungry cats at Smule think it’s okay to play you a 30 second ad before AND after you play a single song unless you pay their monthly fee for the “unlimited make your life heaven awesome crazy subscription”. These songs are created by users - not the developers. They aren’t even making the content yet they profit off it exponentially. Absolutely ridiculous. Just wish someone else would take up the spot on the market because if it weren’t for the exorbitant ads this would be an awesome app. Sad.
FIX THIS APP
by aria1986 on 2019/04/24 13:43
No matter what WiFi I use or high speed internet I am connected to, this is the ONLY app that I have that is super super slow. So it’s not on my end. The songs are super slow and nothing is playable anymore. This has been going on a couple weeks now. UPDATE YOUR APP
Use to be great
by Juice0013 on 2019/04/23 14:15
Too many LONG ads, too many In app purchases to truly enjoy the app.
Too many ads
by Maddietaylor4875 on 2019/04/23 14:10
There are way too many ads and it’s so annoying and I can’t even open the app without it taking 10 minutes to load
I lost my 25 smoola for nothing!!!
by memehsia on 2019/04/22 23:36
I bought a song on this app. It did not work. Why you may ask? I have no freaking idea. I bought Bohemian Rhapsody, and when I made the exchange, I played the song just seconds later. Instead of being able to play the song, it told me that I had to have “ 25 more smoola” I spent all of my 25, now not being able to play it. I later made another transaction with a different song, and it was only a few notes long, which I blame the creator. Anyways, please give me my 25 smoola back!!!!
Charge for free trial
by retrovallies on 2019/04/22 16:46
I used to love this game a few years ago so I Redownloaded it. I was excited to see they were offering a free week trial of their membership followed by 7.99 a week. I authorized and played. However, I didn’t receive the free trial and was charged 9.99+tax for it. This is very unprofessional and they stole my money. Now I’ve tried contacting apple support as well as smule but they refuse to give refunds. If you want to be charged for something free, download it. If you value your money, stay away.
I love it
by DELANEY~chan on 2019/04/22 00:40
It has 2 undertale songs on it my Toby Fox but I’m okie with it! Can you make them free i have no more money Love Delaney
I hate it
by VladimierTheFerret on 2019/04/22 00:34
This app is absolutely terrible. The first thing is that when I buy a song and go to my song book it’s not there . When I try to play a song it glitches *just so you’re aware I have the highest quality internet you can get * . I used to have this app and had a much better experience at that time . I am very disappointed in this app and will not be using it again.
Listen up, this will change your life.
by funnytext4life on 2019/04/21 21:16
I don’t really like this app at all. But instead of writing its flaws down, I decided I was going to waste the time of who ever is reading this with something that is ACTUALLY fun and not BORING. So here we go (you’re welcome in advance!): Okay, so the first one I have is a text message conversation, it goes: Dad: How’s practice going? Son: Terrible, I want to stab everyone here Dad: Okay, just don’t get any blood on your clothes Son: Wait, you’re a police officer, you shouldn’t be encouraging this Dad: Don’t tell me h9w to live my life Funny right? Here is the next and final one: (This is in the perspective of a cafe worker.) I was working at a cafe when a little boy and his mother came in for breakfast. Me: “So what will it be?” Boy:”I WISH TO DEVOUR THE UNBORN.” Then everyone was silent as they turned to look at the boy, the mother looked embarrassed. Mother: Eggs, he’ll have eggs, please. Funniest one yet. I love these thing. Thanks for reading this far if you did. I hope you’re happy I gave you something better to do then whatever you were doing! Bye!
Yes and no
by Pattat10 on 2019/04/21 14:38
Amazing game the bad part is the ads.Its a lot of ads
Wut just happend
by lpsmlplover on 2019/04/21 14:32
I luv this app it has all my fav mlp songs and everything but for 1.thare r wayyyyy to many ads for 2. I shouldn’t hv to buy a smule membership ur making unfair for the kids who’s parents turn off the purchase feature on ur phone or tablet like me 3. How do u even compose a song with out it sounding like crap like one time I tried to give composing a shot but boy was I wrong for that I tried to compose my favorite song from Alvin and the chipmunks meet the wolfman ( munks on a mission) but now when i look at it it sounds discordant and terrible now it only makes me have second thoughts about the app but if u really wanna improve this app ull start by removing so many ads quit the member ship stuff and stop with the terrible sounding composer so u can stop making ppl who can’t compose very well look like losers while ppl like twily sparkles look like they play piano in real life
Stupid ads
by mathea ta momo on 2019/04/21 03:27
I never write reviews but this really needs to get fixed. So, every time you level up you get one coin thing and it’s not fair! If the songs cost so much at least give ten or five. Next the ads. I saw a lot of complaints for ads and when I got the app, surprise surprise the ad colony came and invaded. The songs need to cost less too. Finally, you should be able to test the song BEFORE you get it. I got a song that I really like but it was to short and off. Please fix I love this app.( also I’m in forth grade.)
Well I didn’t like it
by seventeoonethreeninw on 2019/04/20 19:54
It always told me to go to fast, when I went slower it said to slow. The game doesn’t have a good one, also I really want to play songs I want but that’s VIP members so I can’t do it
TO FAST

Takes forever
by Ace1Love on 2019/04/20 04:42
I’ve been sitting on the loading screen for 5 minutes now. It does this every time I open the app it just makes me wanna delete it all together
Needs Improvements: Please read
by ILOVEGAMESANDFOOD on 2019/04/19 21:33
I just started playing yesterday because I used to play it when I was younger. Most of the songs that I wanted to play cost 25 sumolas. I tried to see how I could get sumolas for free. I checked all of the offers, but most, if not all, required personal information. I do not recommend this app for anyone. It’s also pretty hard to play as well. I tried doing the easy level, but even that’s pretty hard! I have a few suggestions for you to make improvements on your game. 1. There should be a guided tutorial of the song you choose, as a beginner level. What I mean is you tell the person playing exactly how to play, but you start at a slow pace. Maybe if you created something like this, you would have better reviews. 2. You should have 7 days within downloading of all of the songs being free. So if someone just downloaded this game, they could enjoy browsing and playing all of the songs for a whole week. After that is up, you could ask them if they want to pay for a membership. 3. You should try to make songs easier, and more fun to play. Don’t you think that it’s kind of hard to start playing with 1 finger, and then going to two back and forth, then playing with 3 fingers, while also playing with 1 and 2 fingers, and then on top of all of that playing with 4 fingers!!?! Wow. That was the hard level anyways. The medium is the hard level without 4 fingers. And the easy level is 1 to 2 fingers. Maybe you should have a super easy one with only 1 finger, or one with only 2,3,or 4 fingers. And last but not least, 4. You should add more encouraging words at the top. So I mean when you are going too fast, it says, ‘’play slower’’ or when you are playing too slow, it says, ‘‘ play faster’’. I think that you guys should have ‘’ oops you are playing too fast, try playing a little slower’’ or ‘’ oops you are playing too slow, try playing a little faster’’, to encourage the little kids who are playing this game. That’s all because overall, this is a pretty sweet game, but I don’t think that I will download it again anytime soon unless you add one or more of the changes I have suggested. Thanks, and bye. Btw, I’m a 12 year old so please take that into consideration if there are any words that I spelled wrong. Thanks again, bye.
I did horrible
by waffel lover on 2019/04/19 20:50
Yay I did terrible at everything
Used to be good...
by GraceTK on 2019/04/19 11:50
This app was a very fun addicting game that I would play everyday. I started to get involved with the daily challenge and I actually started winning each time. I love the idea of composing music on there and buying new songs with the digital currency in game... BUT, the game started glitching bad for me in the end. After every song I played, there would be an ad about some game I absolutely don’t care about whatsoever. This caused a lot of lag and it would kick me out of the game halfway through the songs, including the daily challenge, so I couldn’t compete anymore. Now, it’s even worse and I can’t even get in the game. I will get on the app (which I kept in my favorites folder), but it only shows the loading screen. I remember I was sat for a quarter of an hour waiting for it, but then I decided it wasn’t worth it. The game had a bad ending with me. I will be deleting it and I part from this game giving it a 2 stars.
Good but.... ha I made you read
by PAT12 BROWNS18 on 2019/04/18 21:46
It makes my arm hurts after a while and it hurts my arm and it is mostly inaccurate with the songs that have the most liked for example I got “When I’m Gone” by Eminem and it only got the one part and not The Whole thing.I don’t wanna make this long cuz I am lazy
Very nice
by Dayana6688 on 2019/04/18 06:07
I really love it! ❤️
$mule!
by hamster🤗 on 2019/04/18 04:02

by meloveslither.oi on 2019/04/17 23:02
OMG LOVE THIS GAME. Noting wrong with it EXCEPT... when you get to higher levels I would like some more coins
SO MANY ADS!!!!!!!!!
by Crash bait on 2019/04/17 21:31
Every time I play a song there’s an ad😡😡😡
Things need to change
by DemetriusisBee on 2019/04/17 02:24
The game isn't bad but the adds are horrible I can't go five seconds without one and for the achievements only give one or two coins with most of the songs costing twenty five coins plus the VIP all of the songs that most people like are VIP and you expect people to waste there money on this the game has gotten worse than when it started compared to when it started it didn't have nearly as many adds this needs to change
Makes me mad
by doggy lover11111874638 on 2019/04/16 22:25
Ok first I tried to open the app (this wasn’t the first time it happened) and I wouldn’t open. It just started as the smule screen and froze for like 5 mins. I finally gave up and left the app for a much better game. Another thing that makes me mad abt this app is the paying for literally EVERYTHING. You get maybe 15 free songs and you have to pay for the rest. For the people who’s parents don’t let them buy coins and all, don’t bother getting
I’m just really mad.
by tdttxyc on 2019/04/16 21:26
I have to play songs I dislike. One song and I get one coin, and once I pay 25 I get a song and I can only play it once?! Then If I want to play the song again, I have to buy the expensive trial (I’m broke so this was a let down) I also have to watch adds at the start and end of each song, which would not be a problem to me but for all the shorter songs, really? The rest of the app is ok but I am still deleting the app, I do not have space on my phone for something that has these problems. I could write more but I’m trying not to be too harsh but I would like to say what’s on my mind and for that I’ll give it two stars.
Awesome

I love this game but recently I haven’t been able to open it! :(
To many adds
by Nicholas Doulis on 2019/04/15 23:39
The game is fun but after every song I get an add like come on I just want to play and I’m not buying the subscription thing because I have no money so can you please have an add every 1-2:10 or something
This is a Penny Pincher Game!
by giasadowski1 on 2019/04/15 22:34
Ok.. so, at first the game looks fun and relaxing, but that’s deceiving.. first off, most of the songs cost this smoola currency and it costs money to buy it! Also, if you do watch an ad to get free smoola, it’s fake. You get the smoola but it messes up the entire game.. so I wanted to buy a song and it said transfer problem or something like that and I tried again.. I did not get the song! Also, you only get one smoola per level! That’s stupid, considering the songs and stuff are 25 smoola. If you go on a trial, you get more! It’s so dumb.. also, the game expects you to be perfect by saying you fingers are ‘to far to the left’ or ‘to slow’ when your fingers are almost exactly on the keys! Do you really expect us to move our fingers with the keys? You’ve got to be kidding! I think this game does not make me (or many others) very happy. I think this game or possibly the brand is just trying to get money from people, so don’t waste your time unless your looking for a disappointment 😑
One of the worst music apps
by Ba$ketball&Track⭐️ on 2019/04/15 03:42
I have tried so many times to connect or download a song to play and this app would not let me and I have perfect WiFi and data. This app is very slow and does not have up to date songs also this app just takes too long to load at anything
THIS ISNT A 5-STAR REVIEW!
by Idonthaveafuckingnicknamd on 2019/04/14 21:14
This app used to be so fun, but went downhill so fast. Here’s a list of things wrong with this app: 1). It’s all about the money. 2). You have to pay to play HALF of the songs on this app. 3). “Too far left” and “too far right” no one cares a single bit, Smule. 4). When your weekly subscription is over, even if you DELETE THE APP, it STILL makes you pay. This happened with FOUR of my friends, all of which are VERY angry. CONCLUSION: get it together, Smule.
App stopped working.
by Unicorns4life🦄💕 on 2019/04/14 20:03
Ever since the new update was released, the app has not been able to open up for me anymore. Please fix this.
To much add’s
by myusernameiscupcakequeen11276 on 2019/04/14 18:59
So my brother used to play this or/and still plays it but when I watch him it’s just a lot of adds and barely even the game.. other games it’s just like, Press this button for add! Or, Skip stage for add.. but this game has to much adds.
Good but to much 🤑
by jcedfbwryn on 2019/04/14 16:30
I like this game but to much $$$$$$$.if you fix to have not soo much 🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑,I will probably get this game again!! Please 👍🏽💗
usually good but update not working
by Dingdingdongdingdong13256 on 2019/04/14 10:31
after the most recent update it gives me only a loading screen and won’t do anything else
Guys...plz stop the ads
by MewMewKissyCutie1234 on 2019/04/14 00:57
I love this app and it’s songs! I love composer and only one thing ruins it...the ads. You finish a song and there is an ad. You tap something, there is an ad. Plz stop!!!
I can not do anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by yghgbghhhjhgnn on 2019/04/14 00:55
You really can’t play anything and one level gets you one coin and it’s 25 coins for one song .P.S I want to play queen!
Opening
by A Little Mix Fan Girl on 2019/04/13 23:01
The app within itself is a fun app, if you subtract all the ads. But, recently I’ve been having issues with the app opening. I will click on the app and it will bring me to the Smule Piano title page, but will not advance forward to the app itself. I’ve had to redownload it for it open, which is very annoying. I have the iPhone Xs, so the issue is not about the phone, it is about the app itself.
not addicted to this app anymore
by robokitty1000.1 on 2019/04/13 22:23
This app was good for me since I was like 8 now I’m really frustrated how there’s ads probably every 7 seconds I thought if this keeps on happening I’ll delete it oh yesterday I got home my phone was done charging I went to my music everything was gone this had got me frustrated
Omg I love it soooo much!
by Aahildy on 2019/04/13 18:45
Look at the title it explains what I’m trying to say ok..?! OK
Ads, too far left, $
by hnfjfdrhuxjfncj hd on 2019/04/13 14:50
So I played this game a long time ago and I loved it, and about a month ago I rediscovered it. Overall, this app is not good at all for a few reasons. First of all, this app plays an ad after every song and it plays one before and after for the free songs anytime you want to play it. Smule is extremely greedy. Second, whenever I play this on my phone, it always says I’m playing too far left or too far right and when I try to push my fingers together, it just reads it as one finger so I can never get a perfect. Third, almost all of the most popular songs right now are for vip only which makes smule even more greedy because literally all they want is money and its really annoying. Fourth, it takes you a while to level up and when you do, all it gives you is ONE smoola and rarely a song. The average price for a song is like 25 smoola so imagine how long it would take you to get 25. This used to be a good app, but honestly, I’m disappointed at what it has become
Mo Money, Mo Money
by NanaM54 on 2019/04/13 00:16
This app is actually a lot of fun and I’d gladly pay a small fee to add new songs but there is no way I’m going to pay a monthly or yearly fee (which is pretty hefty compared to most apps). If you don’t upgrade you are barraged with ad after ad after ad after ad.....
I call subscribe
by An2983 on 2019/04/12 21:50
Whenever I try to subscribe for a free trial, it says Thai I’m subscribed, but I don’t get any benefits please help!
Not amused
by pwooster54 on 2019/04/12 14:53
I played this app normally, and I entered the week trial. I later deleted the app but everyday it appears on my phone again and charges me even though I erased my data. I’m angry about this because this game takes my data and money.
Good but too many ads
by yungfuccs on 2019/04/12 06:29
It’s good when I can play but there are too many ads! Ad after every song. Ad before each new song. You get double ads from certain songs. Update: can’t even play now game freezes in loading
Eh
by youdumbdumbgivemegumgum on 2019/04/11 12:04
I kinda like it
Ripoff!
by markhutch428 on 2019/04/11 02:35
You will never be able to cancel this service! It is a ripoff! Do not download even the “Free App” - you will be ripped off !!! I have not been able to cancel this $8.99/month charge for a year! RIPOFF
Why the ads
by wjehwgsh on 2019/04/10 22:53
Ok ok, I know a lot of people have complained and probably have the exact same argument but I love this game. It really is a great game, except for the adds. I deleted it because I couldn’t not get an ad. I hate them so much that I justa deleted them, and also remember I have anger issues so I almost broke my phone because I get mad EASILY. So that’s my complaint, great game but way to many ads. Also there aren’t that many songs by people I know. And people always make fake songs, my friend who also deleted it, bought a cool song, he liked it out of the game, the little video showed the song, but when he bought it... IT WAS TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR. Please look at the songs that are there and play them to make sure they match the video please and thank you.
Wow

Wow just awesome
Fun game but ridiculous amount of ads
by jakjaaja on 2019/04/10 18:21
Super fun game but unless you are willing to pay, before and after every single song you are forced to watch an ad which is a bit excessive in my opinion. The amount of songs you are able to play without paying is very limited and in order to earn “coins” you have to watch ads or pay. There are so many ads that it leads people to delete the app rather than wanting to pay to play more songs especially because all you’re doing is tapping your fingers on your phone. The amount of ads is ridiculous and the game would be more appealing and fun with less ads.
No longer opens
by Rosie2247 on 2019/04/09 22:04
I’m not sure what happened. But the app just doesn’t anymore. I have tried reinstalling it but nothing. Fix this issue
Not the least bit enjoyable.
by drButt on 2019/04/09 18:04
I downloaded it to get premium currency for another game and holy smokes this game is a dumpster fire. It does have some neat songs though.
It use to be fun, but now....
by SilvetWolf on 2019/04/09 03:37
I’m disappointed. It’s hard enough to get coins for new songs if you’d rather not pay for a membership. An ad every few songs were annoying back then, but reasonable. Now it’s an ad to download a song, ad to replay the song, add to continue after the song. Buying a piano or keyboard is way worth it. It’s more fun with a wide range of free songs and not having to deal with ads all the time.
Awful ads
by A_critic_6000 on 2019/04/09 02:11
This crap is why people pirate apps
Ads and Smules or whatever
by 7DM AURA on 2019/04/09 02:09
Full of ads that are difficult to work around, bad money work, I signed in to Facebook and it gave me nothing, can’t we just play songs and enjoy the game??
I’m a little upset
by Sharko_24 on 2019/04/08 19:07
The app starts of very good. Good sound quality and lots of user friendliness. However, I bought the all access pass and got to play some vip songs. After my time expired (which was very short seeming how I paid quite a good bit of money for) I could no longer play any of my songs. I suggest that once you play a song on the vip pass, you should be able to keep it. Also, the songs to buy with the games currency are quite expensive, especially considering that the currency is very hard to come by. My final remark is that the vip pass is very expensive, maybe drop the price a little and make a permanent option? Overall a good game to start with, but a decent amount of room for improvement.
It’s amazing a few fixes tho
by five stars girls on 2019/04/08 15:37
This game is absolutely amazing I love all of the songs they are difficult I like that.... But it could use a few fixes like it does freeze a lot that is a little bit annoying if you guys could fix that that would make my day also about the memberships why do all of every ones favorite song require a membership I am a little disappointed about that but it’s is still an amazing app a few another thing why is there so many pop ups after every song you have to either watch a video or see another pop up it is very annoying if you guys could fix it that would be great this app needs a few fixes but that’s ok because I still rated it 5 stars it is an amazing app I love it is addicting, fun, challenging, and I absolutely love it thanks for making this game such a successful game for every one😎😁😊🥳🤩
It WONT stop PAUSING
by I won't tell you stalkers on 2019/04/08 08:49
The app is great, but I have two main things. First of all, every single time I have to play a four finger note, it will pause the song and I will have to hit resume OVER AND OVER. I don’t know what’s going on but i have been avoiding hard songs because us continually have to hit resume. UPDATED I am so glad you guys have changed it so you can play four finger notes in settings. Except it’s not in settings. The picture demonstrates the little switch you need to turn off, but the little switch ISNT in settings. Maybe there is an iOS update that took it away, but y’all need to work on it.
Good Game...But there could be improvements...
by Rockstar3m5 on 2019/04/08 07:13
I've been playing this game for about a month or so and at first I really loved it... But now it's really starting to get boring. It takes forever to level up to either get the 2 coins or a new song. The songs that I am given are very hit or miss, considering that I'm not a huge fan of classical or pop music. I was really excited to play rock, but I've only got one to two songs... I can't even buy a song because I don't have the coins to. I go through the songs rather quickly because of the way I have to play the game. Levels that require three or four fingers do not register for me, so for four fingers I have to double tap two fingers and for three fingers I have to do it in a 1,2,3 motion instead of all 3 fingers down or else I'm told that I'm using to many fingers. Update: I have deduced my review down to 1 star. While the issues I previously mentioned 2 years ago are still happening. The main reason for the update is to say about the ridiculous amount of advertisements. ADs are shown at every possible chance and it completely takes away from the enjoyment of the game.
Deleting
by rondooolyRN on 2019/04/08 02:56
Been playing for years on different accounts; one paid, a couple unpaid. Unpaid (non-VIP) version—TOO MANY ADS. TOO EXPENSIVE! What used to be $40 a year is now $99. No thanks. There are comparable apps with a similar design and just as fun, if not more so, for free. Goodbye, Smule..
Hot garbage fueled with corporate greed
by Stuffness 22 on 2019/04/07 23:14
Save yourself some Time, money, and brain cells and DO NOT get this app. Smule does exactly what any terrible mobile game company would do except they don’t even bother to hide it. Here’s the process of an experience with this app. Saying that the object of the game is just tapping the notes would be plain wrong. You don’t even have to be clicking on the notes or anywhere near them to get a good score, you just have to do it at the right time, which they make way too easy as the notes slo-mo through the mark. After about every song they litter you with ads, and every 2 seconds they ask for a “free” trial of a “premium” addition. All this does is make you tap the screen aimlessly to a small selection of searchable songs (which you can do on YouTube for free). You get a week of free trial then get charged 8$ a month after that. The problem with this that the trial doesn’t end automatically, and after a week roles by it’ll start to charge you, and if you don’t manually go to the App Store, select the app, and stop the trial, it will keep charging forever. This seems simpleton prevent, but most people forget about this bland excuse of a game less than 2 hours after downloading, and will most likely delete it, but it will still charge you money even when you’re clearly not benefiting from it. This is mainly targeted to children, who don’t understand this scam, and won’t figure out until their parents do 6 months later.
Not sure what happened
by MrMikieMike on 2019/04/07 20:13
This game used to be great. Now I’m experiencing crashes and extremely long wait time to open the app. The past two days haven’t been able to open app, it just stays on the opening/ loading screen.
5 FREE Smoola is a rip off...
by XGhostyYT on 2019/04/07 15:43
Ok. I have 22 Smoola and I’m trying to get enough to buy sadness and sorrow but when I tap it the ad pops up (wich Is a good thing) and the the ad finishes and my Smoola loads only back to 22 and it’s really annoying 😡 I don’t like it when that happens and I then have to reload the game! That’s just dumb the Smoola SHOULD just load to the amount you need. Plz fix this problem. Then I will give a 5 star..
Composition Problems
by SamMcPie on 2019/04/07 15:38
There are a couple of things that I’d like to say for every person who’s into the composing feature. 1. When you try and scroll up it sticks the to beginning of the bar and glitches back every time. 2. When you reach the end of your “composition”, it makes the pause/play button a go back to the start of your 100 bar song button, which gets pretty annoying because I tend to stop it myself. 3. Fix the whole thing where you go to click play or zoom in and out of different divisions and then it accidentally places a note or two. Make the two finger zoom better. 4. Add lower notes, at least a couple. That is all so I hope you can fine this stuff!!!
Great app for the most part.
by Queen of the animals!! on 2019/04/07 13:55
I have had some fun with this app but there ARE a lot of thinks that you really should fix. You can’t get enough smoola to get any songs! You’d have to be level 25 to get enough smoola for one song! Sometimes you can pick a free one, but as far as I’ve seen, it’s really rare. I liked it until I mastered the eight songs I could play. I might re download the app if there’s an easier way to get smoola or if you added more free songs! That’s why it only got 4 stars from me, sorry. 😞
Chill with the ads
by Jo123658 on 2019/04/07 03:39
Every time I finish a stinking song, an ad plays. Let me at least enjoy playing the game.
It’s Getting Worse...
by Team Coley (Coley) on 2019/04/06 22:28
The first time I played this app, I absolutely loved it. It was so addicting and I would play it everyday. Recently, I have been getting farther and farther from playing it. Every time I try to tap with four fingers, the song pauses. Due to this I’ve been getting 3,000 place in the daily challenges which is very infuriating. I really want to delete the app but I am willing to give Smule one more chance. Please fix this problem or else I a, deleting every Smule app I have. Very frustrated 😡😡
here goes...
by katelyn.fischer on 2019/04/06 21:03
ok. so, i love this app. i love composing songs and playing other people’s songs. i had the VIP membership and got SO MANY SONGS and i had to cancel it (6 months later) bc i was still using my dads credit card for it instead of mine. all of the songs i got are now gone and idk how i can get them back bc i had over 200 (i think) and now i have 100 or so. i just want my songs back ;-;
Ad volume obnoxiously and dangerously high
by flprost on 2019/04/06 10:13
I am deleting this app after having it for years. The ads are too frequent and obnoxiously loud. The volume of the music during play is soft, so you have to turn up the volume a lot. Then, when an ad comes on, and that is far too frequently, it is so loud that it hurts my ears. I’ve stopped playing because it’s no longer enjoyable due to greed of developer for ad money and obnoxiously loud ads. Skip this app! Developer is a greedy jerk who doesn’t care about anything but earning ad money.
won’t open
by lxstfxndom on 2019/04/06 08:56
the game is great but it won’t open at the moment? update: i have to delete the app every time i want to open it :/
I know...
by Fireheart556 on 2019/04/05 21:36
I know... there are a LOT of ads, but PLEASE. It’s out of smiles control. Isn’t it? Otherwise, I think this game is decent!
Songs are missing! 😡
by blvckheartwolf on 2019/04/04 19:54
I got a lot of different songs with the coins that I earned from watching videos. I started to really love the app. Until I went on it to play and all the songs that I got were gone but one. I'm permanently deleting this app what a waste!
Frustratingly difficult
by wetworock on 2019/04/04 01:55
So I came in to this game thinking it would be a fun rhythm game and would be something nice to pass the time. What I got was something that didn’t play like a rhythm game at all. The notes come at you at such a speed that my guitar hero instincts kick in and I try to play them on time with the beat of the music, only for the notes to wait there till I hit them. So I slow down so I hit every note and it ruins the song all together. You’d think this game would be more intuitive for those types of players but overall, I think I’m done with this game for a while. Hopefully it updates in to something good but I highly doubt it.
Bad App and has Weekly subscriptions beware
by Ragu V on 2019/04/04 01:41
This kid app has weekly subscriptions and remember to go into your subscriptions through your Apple ID and control. Apple should question these kind of developers that just make money by these silly subscriptions and then blame it on customers.

Still great, but there’s a few things
by hellonoel on 2019/04/03 16:55
I’ve had this app for a VERY long time and it’s always been one of my favorites since I love music. But i’ve been noticing now that most of my favorite songs i can’t play. I used to just have to level up or watch ads for coins to buy more songs which doesn’t really bother me, but now i’d have to pay for a VIP membership. I don’t think it’s the membership is a great idea. I know it’s a way for the app to make more money and all, but it decreases the amount of players overall. Another thing to look at is the crazy amount of ads. Every time I click out of a song I get an ad. The same thing happens when I click to play some songs. I think it’s just too many and maybe start minimizing the amount of ads? The app would be MUCH better.
They really tried it💀
by niamah123 on 2019/04/03 01:30
This app really desperate for money, they really play an ad before and after a song. You can only play like five free songs and that’s it. Tell me why I have to put my dads credit card info for the free trial‼️⁉️ Theys lucky I even gave them one star.
Heaters group up cuz this ones bad
by my oponion on 2019/04/02 01:27
Hate it trash
I love it, but there’s one thing I think could make it better
by Goldenangelfox on 2019/04/02 00:43
So, as a beginner who’s just learning how to actually play piano, this app has been quite useful. The only thing I think could help is if we had the ability to actually learn the song on piano. Reason being, some of the songs I would like to learn to play are available on this app but not on YouTube. Thanks for you time~
Too many ads
by Sugakookies147 on 2019/04/01 22:46
Can you stop putting so many ads?! And can you put more coins for the achievement and stop putting everything for VIP? What’s the point in downloading the game anyways if everything is just VIP. Might as well pay for it when you download it. That’s so annoying. I’m so done with this.
I’ve seen worse...
by Des Backer on 2019/04/01 18:04
I’ve seen worse piano apps, but this one is not the best either. I play this on my iPad (I figured it would be easier to play with a larger interface), and the controls of it drive me insane. I don’t know if it is something I am doing, or if it is something that I need to change, but every time I go to play a four finger chord, it pauses, and then when I un-pause it, it ruins the long streak that I had going. I have to figure out a specific position to put my fingers in (such as rolling my fingers across the screen instead of playing simultaneously) and it’s more frustrating than anything. Another thing is that all of the songs cost something (25 smoolas I think????) and it is almost impossible to save up enough money to buy a new song. The last time I bought a new song was maybe October and I only have 10 smoolas saved up. It’s kinda ridiculous. The reason this is getting two stars instead of one is because the composition part of the software is very easy and fun to play with, and as a music major, I can appreciate that. Also, the ads that pop up in this game are annoying! Especially when it’s an ad for another app that Smule owns. And I personally think that after you watch an ad for a “free” song, that you should be able to play all levels of difficulties under that ad, not just the easy mode of that song. It’s very obnoxious. Another problem I keep seeming to have is that the app won’t open to the game after I click on it. It will sit on the loading screen for however long (my patience wears thin after about 3 minutes). Exiting the app and then opening it again does not help either. It just continues to do the same thing. Only sometimes does it actually open at a respectable speed. I probably have not played the actual game for about a moth because it continues to do that. Now, again, I don’t know if it’s because of the capabilities of this app and it’s partnership with iPad, but you’d think that it should still work regardless. I’d really like to see of the issues be fixed. It is quite an addicting game, and very fun. My music theory/aural skills teacher also really likes it and thinks it is important for teaching piano positions and coordination! This could really be a top notch app!
0 stars
by KAZOO DOGO on 2019/03/31 16:36
I am only putting one star because I can’t put zero this app is a scam they have been charging me for a month for things I didn’t buy and continue too I deleted the app the day I got it and am being charged 10 dollars a week.
Don’t delete ever!!!
by T-homicide on 2019/03/31 03:15
If you’ve had this game on your phone for a while and have all the songs still to this day then good if not and you have deleted this app then you will no longer be able to have the songs that you have already purchased as that is what happened to me..did not have this game on my phone for about six months because my phone broke, re-downloaded it, got my account back, and was no longer able to play my songs...even AFTER restoring purchases. this game is a scam just to get money nothing more from smule for me BOYCOTT SMULE!!!
Too difficult...
by unhappy user12343 on 2019/03/31 02:28
I used to play this game all the time but now it’s just getting annoyingly difficult. Really underrating. Also, TOO MANY ADS! I get an ad before I play then after I play. I spend more time watching ads then I do actually playing the game. 0/10, this game absolutely lost its touch. I highly don’t recommend.
A good app but...

I want to delete it because of how many ads there are. I understand having like a few like one before or after a song and maybe having an optional ad to watch for coins but ads BEFORE EVERY song AFTER ever single song sometimes DURING a song and at random times while I’m browsing. That’s little much in my opinion. I know you can get premium but think about users who obviously aren’t going to use this option!
too many ads

toooo many
Won’t open
by Singing chick 525 on 2019/03/30 02:31
Love the app but for some reason my app won’t open, please come up with an update to fix this.
2 many ADS and GLITHING
by Haltingcutekittycat on 2019/03/30 02:20
Honestly I like the game but 2 MANY ADS I mean they can calm down and when I turn my WIFI off it says I can’t play! And half of the good songs are VIP and not everyone can get VIP like MEH! and the lag.... when I play a song it lags hardcore and messes me up! But for some odd reason I can’t delet it so I guess it gets some credit for that?
Keeps Showing A Menu
by UnicornKittyCookie123 on 2019/03/29 03:43
When I try and play the 4 finger one, it always shows up a menu when I am trying to play an messes me up. A lot of ads. You even need ads to get free songs, so when I am in the car all I have are my songs and only 1+ smule after each level. It is really hard to get stars when it messes me up on 4 fingers. Please update your game and update the things I named.
Horrible
by musision on 2019/03/29 01:52
I was playing it one day and I was on a song and I had three stars and it was about to level me up when it said you have to pay to continue
too many ads!
by Pixelchan on 2019/03/28 21:05
TOO MANY ADS! I can’t even get a stress free gameplay in! i used to like this game, but now every click i make goes straight to an ad!!!
To many ads now
by Beast kide on 2019/03/28 19:57
The game is fun and easy but the ads are too much after you finish a song an add pops up and last like over 15-20 seconds It gets really annoying at-least make the game show less ads and not make an ad pop up after a song But other then the ads The game is really fun to play 😀
WHO MADE THIS MASTERPIECE?
by 🌪☄️🔥FireStar🔥☄️🌪 on 2019/03/28 17:56
I love this app. I am not allowed on YouTube and the only music I can listen to is Kidz Bop, which changes the lyrics to the good songs and makes me dislike the songs they re-write. I like how you can select hard, medium, or easy so it can go how easy or hard you can play the song. It is also nice because sometimes you can sing to the song. I really suggest this app for you if you like music. Thank you far considering this message. 😉😉😉
Magic piano iOS app frozen for days..🤦‍♀️

Too many ads

How do I get out?
by Grandpa Sherm on 2019/03/26 04:56
When I signed up, they said if I didn’t like the program I could cancel anytime within seven days. I signed up to check out what was offered and to see if my granddaughter would be able to use it. There does not seem to be any actual way to use this app and learn how to play piano. The talent required to play this app is the ability to tap your finger on the screen at dots. Maybe monkeys would get a kick out of these sounds this app makes for hitting the dots at the right moment. Now I am faced with trying to find where and how I can cancel my subscription. I am locked into a $10 a month automatic payment, and still have not been able to find out how to change or stop the payment, or to cancel my subscription
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
Fun to play, but not my style
by FoxeGamer01 on 2019/02/28 05:04
I’ve downloaded this app on and off lately, for separate reasons. First of all, I hate all of these ads! I mean, sometimes every time you enter a different song, the same ad pops up. So on top of having to watch these stupid ads for different games, it’s the same one over and over and over. It’s so annoying that I’ve purposely turned off my Wi-Fi just to get rid of ads. It’s ridiculous! Second of all, I hate that the achievements give you only one or two coins! I mean, about eighty percent of the songs cost twenty five coins! And you work so hard on a single achievement to only get one coin? It’s stupid! Last but not least, there’s the case of this VIP stuff! I mean, half the songs in the entire app is in the VIP section! And almost all of my favorite songs are in the VIP section! It’s just not fair. Why should we spend our money on some stupid things like VIP memberships when eventually we’re gonna delete the game for all these reasons! Basically what this game- and all games in fact- is saying is that instead of using money to buy exciting things, we’re using it for an online item that isn’t real. It’s ridiculous, it’s stupid, and it’s a waste of money. Even though I somewhat enjoyed the game, all of these things are making my interests go down! Fix these things!
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Ads, ads, ads, and ads.
by truckload of ads on 2018/11/22 06:21
Jesus Christ where do I even begin? Ok well I’ve had this game for a few years now and I swear to god it’s never been this bad. I always exit a song just before it ends to avoid watching an ad, because they’re literally after EVERY song. Not to mention before AND after free songs, which to be fair there’s a lack of, but I’m not sure I could consider that a good thing either. I have a lot of songs, over 131. So explain to me why there’s only 131 songs in the “my songs” section? Anytime I buy a new song, it doesn’t get added to the list, a problem which just recently started happening to me. There’s no way I’m gonna look up a song every time I wanna play it when it’s supposed to be added to the list for the convenience of the player. THIS BUG NEEDS TO BE FIXED. I tried looking up the songs again, and playing them through again, even beating them on all difficulties, to try and see if it got them added to the list. And it did.... until I closed the app and reopened it that is. Did I also mention that there’s way too many ads? I did? Well the game will shove it in your face again. Something needs to be done, this app is no longer of good quality from the bugs and there’s too many ads, earning smule undeserved money, the company is solely based on greed now.
Very good, but some flaws.
by Trtplayer on 2019/02/24 17:46
Your game is very good and I honestly think it could be quite more famous. But there are some flaws... take the amount of ads for example... every time you finish a song, ad. Whenever you want to play a song in the free song list, and I quote,”your free content will be available after this message!” And then an ad. I feel like you just went a little overboard with the ads. And second of all MEMBERSHIPS. People already know that memberships are becoming a problem. They attract you into buying them, they give you a free trial, and they make it so almost everything is membership only. I counted that vip only song list in the menu. Over (drumroll please) 700 SONGS. You might wanna check how much you do to non-members. Finally, this isn’t too much of a complaint but just a thing to tell you. You’re age rating is 4+ right? Well.... Whenever I have to rack up smoola I watch ads and one of them has been catching my eye. You might wanna check your advertising because one of the ads legit has 18+ in the corner and the end of the ad even says,” adult game for adult emotions.” But so yeah just check your ads every so often and I feel like that this game could be much better
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.
WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
They just won’t listen.
by CaraH628 on 2019/02/12 17:17
Okay, so I just had a peaceful few days of not having ads after every song, and now they’re back! -_- ugh (This is the review I wrote before) So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!
by Alcrex0260 on 2017/11/15 03:31
Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
Disappointing
by uwu 4 u on 2019/01/13 04:55
Ideally this would be a great app. It was fun for a bit but there is really not that much you can do without spending money. Smoola, their currency, is soooo hard to obtain. There are these achievements you can get but after the first few easy ones you realize that the rest are impossible to get. You have to play more songs to get the achievements that get you smoola, but to be able to play those songs you have to buy them with smoola. Either way you need smoola and the only way to get it is to buy it with real money. There are tons of ads just to play song that last only one or two minutes. Whenever I saved up enough smoola ( a rare occurrence) I was so happy because that means I could get a song. So over the course of the few years that I have had this app, I have been able to buy ONLY FOUR SONGS! (I don't use this app that often, maybe once a week or a bit more). I also wish there was a way to preview the songs before you buy them. For two out of my four purchased songs, I have been disappointed with the way they sound. This app would be so much better if you didn't have to spend so much money to enjoy it.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Greek American on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
Time for a change!
by On the second day on 2017/08/10 18:03
I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16

AWESOMENESS, MOSTLY‼️‼️🎹🎼🎶🎵
by Sookie words and more on 2017/08/18 20:23
Magic Piano is SO fun but also SO too funny‼️‼️I'm reading reviews and SMH!! Many if not most of us are far from Bach or Mozart but Magic Piano gives us an opportunity to at least feel like we can actually play a piano!! Realistically, though, NOT!! Now I hear ya about these darn, often occurring, loud ads, they are quite troublesome but at least you can get smules but 1 is not equal to each ad in my opinion. Now granted I love it when I play a song and people in the same room can recognize and identify the song I'm actually trying to play!! I did learn much from reading the reviews in regards to options within the app. such as you can practice, pause, play songs people like us have composed vs. actual composers and so on so I think I can enjoy the experience even better. It's always a plus and boost to the old ego when you play well enough to to unlock more songs and level up!! Thumbs up for me👍🏼👌🏽😜👏🏼👏🏼🎹🎧🎤
Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.
Glitchy and too many ads
by luka / ルーカ on 2018/06/13 03:05
I’m not too sure if this has happened to anybody, but I’ve recently been going into the app only to find that the songs I’ve purchased are not appearing. Typically, the “My Songs” tab only showed the songs you’ve earned when you’ve leveled up, and took a few seconds to show the songs you’ve bought. Now the songs I’ve bought don’t show up at all, and if I want to play a certain song I have to look it up. Super annoying since I have the tendency to scroll and pass something I want to play without thinking about it first. On the other hand, the ads are just too much. After almost every song I play that has a difficulty (not going into the section where it says “Practice) an ad pops up. Having the ads when you are trying to earn Smoola without playing a song makes sense, but having it after every song played is just flat out tedious. Aside from the glitches and ads, the app is pretty fun to play around with. If it didn’t have these problems, I’d probably be on it more often, but the app is slowly being ruined for me.
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Fun, but...
by cheese1342🧀🧀🧀🧀 on 2018/05/09 03:26
I love the app and all, but I have some suggestions. First of all, for the sing jams thing, could you make an option for it, the option being not having to hit the exact note thing. Second, for the composer option, can you make it easy to figure out how to change the timing so the song you made doesn't go really slow? It frustrates me because other people's songs are the right tempo, but my songs never are. Third, when your searching for a song, could you make an option for only songs composed by smule show up? Sometimes, I don't want other people's songs because they can be wrong. Sometimes I want the actual correct version, if of course, smule made the song. That's it for now, so please make the changes. Other than that stuff, it's a great app. Oh, and one more thing, there are too many adds. And they come up too often. If you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO HAVE ADDS, please make them different. I'm so sick of seeing your karaoke app's add. It just makes me not want to play this game or get the karaoke app.
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Good Game...But there could be improvements...
by Rockstar3m5 on 2019/04/08 07:13
I've been playing this game for about a month or so and at first I really loved it... But now it's really starting to get boring. It takes forever to level up to either get the 2 coins or a new song. The songs that I am given are very hit or miss, considering that I'm not a huge fan of classical or pop music. I was really excited to play rock, but I've only got one to two songs... I can't even buy a song because I don't have the coins to. I go through the songs rather quickly because of the way I have to play the game. Levels that require three or four fingers do not register for me, so for four fingers I have to double tap two fingers and for three fingers I have to do it in a 1,2,3 motion instead of all 3 fingers down or else I'm told that I'm using to many fingers. Update: I have deduced my review down to 1 star. While the issues I previously mentioned 2 years ago are still happening. The main reason for the update is to say about the ridiculous amount of advertisements. ADs are shown at every possible chance and it completely takes away from the enjoyment of the game.
Not Sure What to Think
by BlitzyWolf on 2019/01/21 02:29
I grew up playing this and thought it was amazing. However, after deleting it after a few years and deciding to revisit a childhood memory...it most certainly disappointed me. The constant ads drive me insane whenever I play various songs of a relatively short duration. Not only that, but being able to afford the songs I wish to play is just depressing to look at without the means of spending money. Although I understand there must be ads and a reason to become a VIP to earn money, I don’t see a purpose strong enough to convince me to spend a penny on this app. On a different note, I’ve played this on my iPad and have found it exceedingly frustrating to attempt playing songs on a hard difficulty due to the four finger taps available during them, because it pauses the song and brings up a menu from the bottom about half of the times I try to play the four finger notes. I’m unsure why a pausing mechanic like that was implemented into the game due to inconvenience and how unnecessary it is. So, I highly doubt that I will return to using this app unless some of its serious issues are properly addressed.
It’s great but more
by kelly old mellie on 2018/07/23 05:50
I love this app you can play really good songs and especially I love how you put Beethoven songs I love playing them every day I love listening to music it just is pretty easy but I like it the only thing is I hate when you have to watch an ad before you play one of your favorite songs please just get rid of this these ads because like I’m starting to hate this app but I really love it and I love just like everything and it’s really nice how you put every song but and I don’t like how you have to cost coins for it and I just wanted to be like you know how on karaoke you can choose whatever song you want by now on this you don’t choose like what song you want and I want to choose whatever song I want to play but I can’t because I’m trying to practice on my 🎹 even though I love it and the only thing is just get rid of all the ads😘😛😠 all at the same time
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
It’s amazing a few fixes tho
by five stars girls on 2019/04/08 15:37
This game is absolutely amazing I love all of the songs they are difficult I like that.... But it could use a few fixes like it does freeze a lot that is a little bit annoying if you guys could fix that that would make my day also about the memberships why do all of every ones favorite song require a membership I am a little disappointed about that but it’s is still an amazing app a few another thing why is there so many pop ups after every song you have to either watch a video or see another pop up it is very annoying if you guys could fix it that would be great this app needs a few fixes but that’s ok because I still rated it 5 stars it is an amazing app I love it is addicting, fun, challenging, and I absolutely love it thanks for making this game such a successful game for every one😎😁😊🥳🤩
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule
by sophieshopkins😊 on 2018/06/24 01:49
I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!
by WaterAirFireEarth on 2018/07/13 02:05
Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
This is not fair
by Frankiew0415060 on 2017/09/23 14:25
Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again
I love it!- but I absolutely hate it...
by ItsJeffH on 2019/03/21 17:12
It looks like SEVERAL people who have written a review about this app, share the same opinions about the overabundance of advertisements, the ridiculous amount of money it costs to even unlock songs, so you can actually use this app, and finally, the whole VIP membership thing; Smule is ALREADY doing everything they can to get you to spend money on this app, you basically have a "free trial" game, unless you decide to spend real world money on dumb coins to buy one, two songs maybe?- So in order to really play this game (and I must say this game IS a lot of fun once you find a way to simply bypass all of the ads and such) you must pay for either, coins, or go for the VIP membership. If the developer of this app happens to read this, I want you to know that deep down under all the ads and almost required in-app purchases, this is an incredibly fun game. It's like guitar hero but better because you can compose your favorite songs!
It's okay, but...
by D.Mattle on 2017/11/20 21:10
It's a little frustrating when you level up you're rewarded with a song you have already gotten for free. Also, the daily free songs just repeat over and over rarely giving you something you don't already have. One more thing I don't like is that most of the really good songs are only available with a "monthly subscription". That's it, everything else is good. 3 stars Update: I've been playing this game since 2011. It's always had its quirks that made it a pain in one way or another. The last year or so it has gotten so forceful with advertising that it's not even fun anymore. I very rarely play it anymore. Usually if I'm waiting in the car while the wife is shopping or something. There is an ad before and after every song. You can't close it without closing the game. Ridiculous to have to watch a 30 second ad to get your points, so you can watch another ad before you play the same song again at a different difficulty then another ad to get your stars. So I'm taking my previous stars back. Much to greedy anymore.
Good for fun, but not really for a wallet.
by ILuvHetalia on 2018/10/03 02:23
I wanted to use the free trial for a little bit, just to play some of the songs I liked. Well, it reactivated the trial somehow after I cancelled it. I didn’t do anything to reactivate it. And it didn’t even tell me. So, now I’m out $25 cause of it. You guys need to at least say it when you charge for the subscription cause I had no clue it was happening. I don’t have a job of my own, and I was using a credit card my parent opened for me. I hope you guys read this and figure out a way to fix this issue so people know when they’re gonna be charged. Or, instead of telling the, after they’re charged, tell them a few days before so they can cancel if need be. Not only that, but I can’t even access songs I was able to play with the VIP subscription after they were in my songbook. Why not just remove them from the song book rather than taunt players who cancelled their subscription with songs they played. You guys have gone downhill over the years...
What happened?
by OMGitswolfie on 2017/12/23 02:43
What in the world happened to this game?! I'm just a kid and i used to love this game when I was really young where I could play any song and didn't have to pay for any! What happened to that? You guys seem more greedy for money and we need a freaking VIP membership to get songs that is really popular?? WHAT?! Membership costs like 100 bucks! And what's with all the adds?? Everytime I just finish a song an add comes up and most of them are apps I already have! Some adds have sexual content which I shouldn't be seeing! I really enjoy this app but the songs that I love are like 75 coins now! Now I have to copy it and change a note just so I could play it! What's up with all of that stuff?! If the adds get away or the VIP is more cheap like 10 bucks or something more people would buy it instead of making it 100 bucks people wouldn't buy it so expensive! Too many adds are occuring! I give this a 3 stars.
Not much fun anymore!
by DallasFawn on 2018/06/02 22:41
I have been using this app for over 5 years. I loved it and was addicted. I loved challenging myself to play the easy level perfect, then medium, then hard. If I messed up, I restarted. Many songs were quite challenging. I loved it until level 100; the highest you can go. It’s like the developers of the app gave up. No more achievements to earn, no coins for leveling up and no new instruments. How disappointing!! I played this app every day. It was fun, challenging, and relaxing. I agree the VIP members only should be removed. I also would pay a small fee to remove the horrendous amount of ads that I am forced to endure. It was never like that when I started. And I had an issue a year or so back where I had to uninstall and reinstall the app. Lost all my progress. Songs were there but no stars. Like starting all over again. I was upset. So, where once I would have given it 5 stars, I gave 3. I was debating if I should give it a 2. And I forgot to mention the daily challenge of which I never got into the top 50. How did all of us, get an average score of around 1,212 points while 1 person got 2,065. Impossible, and it happened many times. If the developers put better changes in an update and make the app similar to what it used to be, I would give them 5 stars again. I am an older person and I’m disappointed in this app.
This app is horrible.
by Jammapanda on 2017/07/08 03:05
Let me start with the fact that you only earn one smoola every time you level up, which every song costs 25 to 75 smoola so that is very ridiculous also taking into account that to get more than around 30 XP, you have to play a new song. Next the game will tell you that your finger is "too far right" or "too far left" when your finger is exactly on the note which brings down points. The songs are mostly a bunch of crap and if you buy a song that isn't what it says it was you can't return it, no you're stuck with a worthless song. Also let me mention, there is an ad after EVERY SINGLE SONG YOU PLAY. I have the patience to sit through an ad every two to three songs but after every single song? It's ridiculous. You have to pay an $8 a week membership just to play certain songs or not have to use smoola to unlock songs which is absurd. Maybe $8 a month but not a week. A month would be around $32 so a year would be around $500. Wow. This is a horrible app.
This app makes my life much better....
by caddy granny on 2018/10/26 20:52
I’ve played songs on Magic Piano for five years. I’m sorry to see so many complaints in the reviews. I guess they are dissatisfied with the game element. I just play the song book as I have a subscription yearly. It is dang little money to pay for the hours of pleasure it affords me. I’m 78 years old and there is hardly a day goes by that I don’t have my Smule fix. I have mastered over 400 songs pretty much sticking to the traditional, musical theatre, and classical ones. I like to see my scores even though I can’t usually better my highest scores probably posted years ago. My old fingers are not as flexible as they used to be. I love the concerts I play for myself and get great satisfaction in playing my favorites over and over. Use my iPad Pro and love Magic piano. ❤️❤️
To the ruthless complainers
by Jane Spindly on 2017/11/11 02:33
For those who complain about ads, go read a book. They're just a few seconds long, and you can close them easily. If it gives you crashes I'm sorry, but just do what I do: play the entire song except for the last note. Then you can go and play a different one. Yes, that blocks off your experience, but you can just get one of the easy XP 1000+ songs and be rich. And for those who say all the good songs are VIP, go read two books. You do not deserve the pleasure of hearing the masterpieces of Disney orchestras. Musicals have fantastic music too, so please stop complaining about your cool teenage rap songs being unavailable. This is the only app you'll ever need, if you can't see that then you obviously don't recognize how much of a blessing it is.
Garbage
by TheGantos119 on 2017/12/28 19:21
I used to like this app. But now it’s just a cheap excuse for money. There’s too many ads. You have to watch an ad or else you won’t get any score for playing a song. You can’t play offline either, or else it won’t show your songs. You know why? Because ads have to have internet to work. I’m not doing a monthly subscription for smule points either. It’s just a piano app. It’s not like Xbox Live or PlayStation+ where it makes sense to have a monthly subscription. Because with those, you have more than just one game. Not just one where you tap the screen. I just don’t see the point in that. I’m sick of the video ads too. You’re forced to watch one once you finish a song and it gets annoying and repetitive very quickly. Not to mention you have to watch them if you want to get more songs. Or, you could subscribe to smule. Again, I don’t see why anyone would want to do this. If this game was fair and not such an obvious excuse to make a few dollars, I wouldn’t have a problem with it.
